Where I work now uses "var" simply because resharper\validation tools tell them to. When you ask why they use var, what advantages it gives, no-one can actually tell you, they simply say "that's the standard". Your code fails review if you don't use var so I write my code like a normal sane person and when I come to check it in I change all my types to "var", check it in then die a little inside.
If god had meant for man to use var, he wouldn't have given us intrinsic types.
