So little actual software development in software engineering roles

I think this depends a lot on the company.  IMO, you find this a lot at 
large, established companies.  (e.g., I used to find this a lot at Wall 
St. banks.)

So IMO (and granted, I don't know a lot about your specific situation 
here, so I'm just speculating) the companies that you're looking at are 
what's old and washed up.  I see a tremendous amount of new development 
going on, but it's largely with smaller startups.

Just my $0.02.
