For my yearly review I tried to request for a bigger compensation with a few reasons on how I have taken up more responsibilities and helped sustain/grow business to which I receive a response where they still need a follow up email from me to justify my effort in the past year. The people making the decision are all new so they haven’t been a part of my journey. I know I deserve this raise. How do I make it more convincing?

You could ask your peers to give you written feedback to submit to them. I’ve done this before when it was requested by the people making the decision.

I'm so fed up with the casual sexism of my mom. Last night, she was worried about my sister whose husband doesn't have "the same earning potential" as my brothers 1, 2, and 3, all named individually, so "she will always be poor". When I pointed out that she compared my sister only to my brothers, I earn more than them, and both my sister and I are at top firms in our fields, she said, "...mm". Later she said how happy I am when I'm not working and I should quit to raise kids (no kids yet)

I’ve just started my career 2 years back and I really want to have an international exposure. I don’t want to change my career path and stick to consulting. The only options I have is: 1. Go for MS - which is a big investment 2. Start applying to other countries for job. But I’m not sure on which countries have opportunities since my overall experience is just 2 years. Would love to hear your suggestions.
