does anyone else feel forced to produce crap?

Management wants MORE RESULTS NOW NO MATTER WHAT THE COST!!!!!

I feel like the world is telling me to give them more crap, less useful code!

Does anyone else feel like business requirements are forcing them to produce lots of fluff rather than small amounts of quality content? Should I be concerned? Should I care that the business is focusing on high output in the short term in exchange for low output in the long term?

I’ve been told to quit trying to fix problems and to focus on what my manager wants, whether or not it means breaking the system for investors. This seems like a self-serving way to look at the world. If I were concerned with my family’s status in the world over the stockholders, I would totally go for it.

But my conscience is getting in the way. Could someone recommend a way for me to slay my concern for humanity so that I can think like management and care less about the welfare of the world?
