    Good work

    Thank you for the good work that you are doing.

    Is this sentence right or not?

    Re: Good work

    Maybe "the" doesn't need? Maybe just Thank you for good work that you are doing?
    Or "job" instead of "work"?

    Re: Good work

    Whether you use 'job' or 'work', you need 'the'.

    Re: Good work

    And is it also right to use it like Thank you for the good work you are doing? Without "that"?

    It's fine with or without 'that'.

    Re: Good work

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Hello, Entofsez,

    You have asked for an opinion, so here is my opinion.

    I do not think that you can go wrong (especially in business communications) if you always choose the more formal style.

    So I would write something like:

    "Thank you very much for the excellent work that you are doing."
