probably more importantly, the employer is in business to produce the code.
Most often: the company is in business to make money, the employer to ensure that happens by managing managers who manage programmers who write code.

Complicated code that utilizes newer language features to achieve excellent results ... speed, less memory use, enables new features ... is going to get used: if the direct (adoption, updating, testing), or indirect (legacy compatibility) costs are tolerable.

The issue of willy-nilly adoption of new syntactic sugar: is a red herring Smile | :)
«... thank the gods that they have made you superior to those events which they have not placed within your own control, rendered you accountable for that only which is within you own control For what, then, have they made you responsible? For that which is alone in your own power—a right use of things as they appear.» Discourses of Epictetus Book I:12
