Hi folks, when I joined my organization, I started at a lower annual salary and no esops. But with subsequent appraisals my salary has improved in 2.5 years. Also I have been granted some esops (not included in ctc) and their value has also increased.

I'm wondering as to what should I tell recruiters what my current ctc is?
Should I account the value of esops in my annual salary to give them the ctc , if yes then how should i calculate it?

How to manage up? My team leader keeps misadvising me which makes me look incompetent and she’s brazen about it too.

WWYD: FTM and gov attorney - before I went on mat leave I filed letters listing my argument unavailability dates. Recently I learned I totally miscalculated my leave - I listed my return as Jan. 3, and HR just told me I am eligible for leave until late Feb. But one of my cases was already scheduled for early Jan. and I confirmed the date with the court. If I work at all, leave ends. Go back early since it’s my mistake or contact court and try to move even though I already confirmed the date?

While my boss is very sensitive to sexism, he often reminds me that I am only a 2nd year, and that sometimes people (attorneys in our firm, outside co-counsel, opposing counsel) treat me differently in accordance with my experience level, rather than because of my gender.
