Revelation -- The engineer,
This person has already been discussed. He has taken ownership ( of the design and implementation he said he designed it not our team designed it ) of the monitoring and control cockpit system/s. He went to work everyday and collected a paycheck , he accepted the bonus's that were given out , he accepted and used the paid vacation time that was given out , and he accept and used the sick time given out.
This man did not say anything until he went back to work for Boeing in 2018. Why would anyone believe anything he has to say ? He is just as guilty , if not more , than Boeing itself.
He designed a sub standard system , let it be used , and just kept working until he left in 2015. He came back to Boeing employment for a second around 2018. He is now working on the 777x , is Boeing going to have the same problem with it ( the 777x ) from this guy. In the eyes of myself and my friends this guy should be investigated for charges of murder. Look again he said nothing until 2018!
From my point of view, that's an absurd ethical proposition.Just because I accept compensation to help produce product X, definitely does not mean I must buy or recommend product X!
I've worked for many companies building several products I would not buy or recommend.
At work the only things I can control are things I work on, and even that is greatly influenced by the resources I'm given, such as time, budget, manpower, equipment, training, etc.
In many cases one avoids the things they work on because they know all the flaws, whereas the competing product may be just as flawed but those flaws aren't known.
What I do to earn money is different from what I do with my money.
Purchasing decisions run the spectrum from buyers who want the cheapest stuff and will deal with any quality issues, to buyers who pay a premium and make sure they get what they pay for.
Some of the stuff I've worked on appeals to the "value shopper", yet my own purchasing decisions are along the lines of a "premium shopper".
Some things I've worked on is just because the work on offer was convenient, timely, and well paying, but I'd never buy or recommend the resulting product.

-- please provide proof.
None of the references I have can prove such a statement.

During the development of the 737 Max, Mr. Ewbank worked on the cockpit systems that pilots use to monitor and control the airplane.
