This is a nuance question. Is there an implicit hyrarchy in using "work with"? For instance is there a difference between the following two sentences?
1) He worked with me on the project.
2) I worked with him on the project.
I'm just wondering if (1) would sound a bit arrogantly if we were pure peers and (2) would be putting myself under him. Since I'm not a native English speaker, I'm struggling.. thanks.
Re: work with
#1 may suggest that it was primarily my project, #2 that it was his.
