My gf gonna make 180k next yr after she graduates undergrad. Its all good

That's considered low for PE. My friends (also 2014 undergrads) are getting 250-300 all in. One was even allowed to allocate a portion into equity for a portfolio company, so in a few years when they sell, he's rich. He stays in a 3800 rental 1 bed room apartment as a 25 year old... so yep thanks for bringing up the fact that we all make ¼ as much as they do for the same education.

This company I am interviewing with is not proposing a base salary and an OTE. They are asking me to create it and I really need guidance here. It’s an AE role in medical SaaS sales for orthopedics surgery. What do I need to ask? So far I know that they cover medical insurance, there is no 401k, and there are private company stock options. It’s mainly inside sales with maybe 10% travel.

My thought was 75k base and 110k OTE. But they are saying to lower the base and increase OTE.
