@Dunk, can you explain how your team does code reviews? Your team sounds very forgiving. You mentioned that the last developer to touch the code gets the next task, is that even when all they did was a small cosmetic change or only done minor changes in the project and are not considered the project expert?

@Dunk, in my question I stated that my colleague had no development assignments in the same project--he was only responsible for reviewing code. I believe one of the points of a code review is to involve the programmer whose code is being reviewed/changed.

I think Mikey's answer is good explanation as to how do I stay a team player. Maybe this is too people focused? Like Yannis suggested, my team's development process sounds to be the real problem. Regardless I am curious as to why this was downvoted.

So you're saying that I should just focus more on learning from my teammate and less on doubting myself and his incentive? This makes sense, as I cannot change my colleagues but only myself.

My only concern with your answer is what if my team lead becomes worried that someone else "has to" improve my work? I doubt my current team leader would care, but I've had team leads in the past that would let such changes count against me--which doesn't seem fair if the improvements were unnecessary.
