I have recently moved into a new team at work (2 months or so) and recently I have noticed that I feel like I am being treated like I am a small child. This mostly comes in the form of excessive (and quite frankly, patronizing) praise whenever I complete very simple tasks.
As an example, today another team had an issue with our application and I helped them resolve their issue. As I walked away, their manager literally started a round-of-applause that spread to the entire work area, with everyone on the floor loudly clapping for me.
Later on in the day I helped another person with an issue and as I returned to my desk, a team leader approached me and told me "wow, you did such a great job today!" in the type of patronizing tone that an elementary school teacher would say to one of her students.
This is just from today - previously there have been similar situations, where I help someone out with a small issue or write some very simple code, and I am told "how great of a job I am doing, wow!" or if I figure out the bug in some code and point it out, it's "Wow, you're so smart!"
It is extraordinarily embarassing and does horrible things to my self esteem. I feel like I have no respect on the team, because it is clear that they do not view me as an equal. But, I'm not sure what to do about it - clearly this is not going to stop. And I really don't know how to bring this up to anybody to ask them to stop, or even if that's the right thing to do because it will probably make it worse.
