Perhaps the view or reaction of coworkers and/or management is dependent
on what your work and its results do for them. If they get no personal
reward--e.g., aid in performing some chore of their own--it's easy to take
your work and your achievements for granted. No body cared whether I won a
new contract or not, unless that contract yhad some effect on thei lives,
even as little as bragging rights, if they had been even indirectly involved
in the accomplishment. - Herm
