I’ve been working with my manager for a while now and recently it’s become a lot more of him asking me for guidance rather than the other way around. I want to ask my dev lead for me to not have to work so closely with my manager, but I’m not sure how to bring this up.
My manager is a bit more experienced than me, but we are both still considered ‘junior’ devs. I get the feeling he was shoehorned into becoming a manager while not necessarily wanting a managerial role.
The dev lead would be more than willing to help out, but I don’t want to bring this up and ‘bad mouth’ my manager.
