So I'm working on a project, and was told to work with a partner for a specific part of it. Basically, I supplied the data/explained the project and then my Partner did the remaining work as it's something I don't have an expertise in.
My PM has recently been out of town for a couple weeks. However, coming back from vacation the PM wasn't aware of who is working on what and he gave us equal credit for finishing the task-- which I didn't expect, and I dont think is fair.
I've since spoken to my partner and let him know that I was surprised by the equal recognition, as he did most of the work. He basically said " I don't mind sharing the credit", but it seems dishonest to take equal credit?
Am I just making too big of a deal of this/should let things stand? The PM specifically sent an email thanking us both for getting it done as well (as well as an official company recognition that comes with $25).... should I just drop a email back saying, "Hey thanks, but Partner did the heavy lifting" ?
