    Basically I am finding that in my job I am given absolutely no recognition for all the good work I do, and instead only the negative feedback matters.

    To put it into perspective, I work as a junior doctor and have just finished a placement in a specialty I really want to pursue. My end of block feedback was basically: this (minor) issue has been raised about you, but you have improved on it. Otherwise no concerns have been raised.

    I have spent months working in clinics, wards and on call and working so hard for my patients - to hear this meaningless feedback that could just as easily be regurgitated by a robot.

    Is this the same in every job? Am I being totally naive in thinking that credit should be given for the things you do well particularly, rather than for "not raising concern" but not being told any positive feedback that show you are actually good at your job and valued?
