    The only time I've heard of it being used is as a closing sentence to a rejection letter to someone who was denied a job, admittance, to a college, a rejection of your submission of an article to a newspaper/magazine/publisher, or some other rejection letter.

    It says that although the person writing the letter cannot accept you at the time, they are being polite and wishing you luck.

    I would consider it to be formal.

    "Good luck" sincerely wishes the best.

    "in your future" means your future, not this company's.

    "endeavors" means attempts, plural. Not very encouraging.

    I see the phrase as a nice form of rejection. It implies that the person needs luck, is not welcome and is bound to fail multiple times.

    There are definitely warmer ways of saying goodbye to a valued employee. However, the phrase is so common and formal that most people don't analyze the exact connotation.

    It's a formal way of saying, "Don't bother me/us/this company anymore."

  • TBH It's a very formal ending. You wouldn't want to use it to end a relationship.
