I work in a university in the US. I was hired by a person that left last year for a better position somewhere else. My previous manager invited me to join him in his new position and have a role equal to my current position, but I decided to not leave my current job.
My new supervisor constantly blames my previous manager by undermining his contributions. My current supervisor reminds me, in each meeting, that the previous manager's time is over, and if he was good, he would still be here. She ignores the fact that my previous manager left our university because he found an incredibly good position somewhere else.
Hearing these complaints and ignoring of my previous manager contributions hurts me a lot. My previous manager is still my friend and I believe he is a really good man, and really powerful and talented in his works. I'm not sure about the meaning of these complaints that are thrown on me; perhaps my new supervisor is trying to tell me that I need to leave also.
Is there a way to professionally ask my new supervisor to stop this?
