Has anyone here taken a pay cut because of mental health? I work in a very dysfunctional environment with a manager who can be despotic and unnecessarily harsh - and I am tired of it. I have been interviewing with a small company who seems to have nicer management but pay 20% less. And I am just about to jump ship.

I would do it. If you stay at your current place, you'll continue to be miserable and burn out - and probably wind up quitting one day without anything lined up. Even if this is less, it's better than nothing at all. Maybe you can negotiate a plan in your contract for a bonus in 6 months or something like that?

Also, for context, I once quit my job without any offers purely because of mental health. So I've been there and it's scary - it feels nice to at least have some kind of pay on the line, even if it isn't as much :)

☝🏼 I did this too. Take a step back, stick it out for a yr and re-evaluate. Careers are dynamic. Make sure you keep a strong network and protect your reputation

Mental health and any kind of health is very important, if you are healthy you would naturally grow in the new firm as an engaged person can do wonders. On the contrary if you are not emotionally safe or feel valued, the toxic work culture starts eroding your happiness and body responds by creating toxins and free radicals ergo all sorts of ailments. No amount of $$$ is worth that. Find a place where you will be respected and appreciated and that’s where you belong!

Thank you so much!!!!

I'm sorry if this is out of place, but is anyone interested in coming on my veteran podcast? I work for a Nonprofit Organization that provides supportive services to veterans in CA, NV and AZ and our podcast discusses issues relevant to veterans. I'm organically searching for veterans who are willing to talk about their experiences, mental health and healthcare, employment, case management, housing for the homeless, etc. We don't require you to be an expert on anything.
