    congratulation or compliment

    hi, i am a little bit confused with my English lesson
    can we congratulate someone with other phrases like "Good Job" or "You've done a great job"
    i just do not get it when i tried to compare those two expressions with compliment.
    aren't they compliment or congratulation expression?
    can we congratulate someone without the word "congratulations"?
    thank you.
