    Employees that care more about releasing software to meet an artificial due date so they can get a bonus. They cared more about getting it done, so they would look good to the boss, instead of the big mess they created and force additional work to fix it. You don’t deserve a bonus if you met the release date yet caused the company to waste a lot of hours to fix your mess.
