I am a software developer, and my new co-worker is privately asking me questions and then sending them in private group chats to our client. This is my first job and I wasn't sure whether this is acceptable or if I should do something about it.
My co-worker used to be part-time, he is an expert in the industry and someone we used to ask general questions to. He has now become our full-time project manager (he has never been a manager before). As he was new to the role I expected lots of questions and was happy to help. But, our client recently added me into a group chat, to get my opinion. In the chat I saw that he was asking me the questions that where being asked in this channel, and copy and pasting my answers as his own.
On one hand, I don't mind this as I prefer not to talk to clients and like to go through my PM, if possible. But I also want credit for my answers and opinions. I'm not sure whether to leave it and see if it stops as he gets more used to the role? Should I talk to him about it (although I'm scared of running a relationship)? Or mention it to my old PM who was promoted?
