Some of our tests are using mocks and/or fixtures, but most of them
aren't.  And in many cases, the tests are bringing up the entire
application when they set up, and stopping it when they tear down.

As you might imagine, there's a huge difference in speed between the
tests that use mocks and/or fixtures and the tests that don't.
Unfortunately, we don't have the time or money to fix up all the unit
tests to use them.
