Solution and not the problem

Your boss expects a solution from you and not the problem. You might point some generic problem to your boss but if you do not accompany it with one or two solutions then it sounds more like complaining because your boss expects you to solve the problem ideally and not come up to him with a bunch of problems and increase his stress. For example like just do not go and say only like budget got approved and still have not been released but also tell him that you have come up with a solution and wrote an email to the VP or HR of finance and requested them to look into that matter as soon as possible.

Going to the boss with a bunch of problems and not with solutions projects you as an incompetent employee which tarnishes your reputation. Highlighting some genuine problems is fine but also trying to come up with solutions.

Hardwork vs visible work

Hard work not, visible work matters. Work that brings in positive results is only awarded. If your hard work does not result in positive change, the firm has all the right to fire you. Many people especially those who are just starting their career have such an assumption that if they toil around in silence till late at night then their bosses would be impressed with them. But this is clearly not what happens and they often complain that they do not get selected for promotion when they think they have done their part.
