Consulting

Not staffed on the project but I worked really hard & pulled an all nighter to “help” someone with a deliverable and all I received was a “Thanks.” Genuine appreciation goes a long way

M2 looks like you are the guy who would just say thanks if someone helped you. Be a leader not manager, but again it’s not your fault you are a manager so that was expected. Bye

How many points? Next time don't help that person, and appreciation does go a long way. We should all remember that when we're asking for help.

M2, no, obviously not. I’m glad to help where I can. It would be nice to seem more sincere when people spend 14 hours+ to help, especially when there is no personal/direct gain on their end.

OP don’t worry your work ethic and eagerness to help will go Long way. Just because one person didn’t recognize you things won’t fall apart. Someone else hold you up and recognize you. You will do well. I am proud of you.

That thanks may be far more than a thanks in the long run. Those who do work looking for recognition are never the ones that find it. Believe in karma - do good things and good things will happen to you.

Did you expect a medal?

Appreciation is directly proportional to value. This basically means your “hard” work either did not provide as much as value you think it provided that warranted for more than just "thanks” or the other person is simply a jerk. Judge it for yourself.

You expect more than thank you. Sometimes you won't even get that. Be happy you got a thank you.

When you offered to help, what were you expecting in return?

WM1- Absolutely, I don’t focus on the “recognition” aspect but more on sincere appreciation. I value people’s time greatly from big to small because these are real people with other priorities.

At least you got a thanks, I’ve done that before and received radio silence,
