Somewhat, I feel it down using this sentence to our seniors, especially our boss.
Good job, sir
Or...for that sake..
Well done, sir
I need natives' input for this. If I'm working for you/under you, and want to appreciate your efforts, may I say those sentences? Will you feel down/offended/ridiculous? Because I'm too small to speak this?
On the other hand, a CEO can certainly say this to another CEO. My basic question is
good job/well done is okay when a person in low hierarchy refers to the higher authorities?
