I think it's an ethical issue for an awful lot of consultancy companies. Sales and commercial teams get contracts, forcing bad time estimation in order to avoid the contract is awarded by another company. So, the pressure is too high against the developement team, provoking it a burn-down crisis, then, a lot of developers resign their positions. Consequently, this fact brings more time delays with respect to the release date. In addition to this fact, the code will be badly written, buggy code pieces everywhere, bad practices and only black-box testing at most.
