re: I kind of disagree on point 3. So far in every company I worked for, in the first phase we always write a quick and messy poc to see if our idea is...
 

Just wanted to state a counter-argument here, and say that point #3 resonated with me more than any other.

I am currently refactoring a code base for a client that is outrageously messy. And why? Because the original developer was messy and the people that followed him just copied his style. Now we have huge functions, one of them 1400+ lines long.

I guess I should not complain. They are paying me very well to clean it up.
