Please please do not ever use CTC comparison between current and next company. If you get an offer, do an in hand calculation. Some companies add Retirals like Employer PF, Gratuity along with Insurance, furniture allowance as part of your CTC. Others don't. Sone also have higher variable package. So when you do a CTC delta you may get a 20% hike but when you discount the above things you will fall short and may end up making less. So choose wisely.

How much discomfort/inconvenience am I supposed to endure for work travel?
I’m being asked to travel from CA to NY for a trade show. Flight options are either overnight or amount to 18+ hours of travel. Plus, I’m a bigger guy and sitting in an airline seat for 6 hours is miserable. I was hired without any pre-defined travel expectations/requirements.
