Don't feel like a failure. A job isn't everything. If they're wanting to terminate you because you're taking medical leave then maybe you don't want to work for them. Mental health is much more important than that. Make sure you are okay before going back. We're always here for you when you need someone.

You are not the problem here. I can definitely understand the frustration and stress. Do your best to focus on yourself, even if it means having to look for another job.
If you are not well, nothing else matters. Hugs OP. You'll get over this. Remember: YOU COME FIRST!

I def don’t feel like a failure because of my job. Depression suck and it’s just been a bad couple of weeks , why I’m on medical leave. This job is BS and they can kiss my ass.. but when they say terminated and you are tying to be better mentally it just cut deeper then it normally would ... and i agree with everything both of y’all said ..

Hang in there OP. I am sorry you are going through this. The pain you must be feeling. People can be the biggest pricks when it comes to mental illness where it is you or a family member. I have a child bi polar hospitalized three times in three years. I just fought my first battle with depression with meds for last six months. I would cry on my way into the office I hated the job, world and life. Meds started kicking in, no longer working with same group anymore and am working with someone who gets it. Hang in there. We are pulling for you and are here for you YOU COME FIRST.

Hello all, I hope you’re all having a fantastic day/evening. I’m a Case Manager for TZ Insurance, aka Tranzact.

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.
