How about - Programming staff looks to all be under 35 years of age?
How about their idea of training is - "You need to do that on your time."
Twenty years after graduation from college, only 19% of computer science majors are still employed as programmers. This compares, for instance, to a figure of 57% of civil engineering majors who are still working as civil engineers 20 years after leaving school.

The best sort of training is on the job mentoring. Maybe one knowledgable person works with three who are learning. Often the legacy programmers understand business domain and the new people don't.
I believe a lot of OO projects fail because of a lack of knowledge by the developers in the business domain.
