I work as a full-time mid-level web developer for a company that makes significant income. I currently make ~70-80k which is pretty middle of the line for my location. The owner of the company has taken an interest in my potential, and after a few months I was allowed to work with my PM to hire an intern dev. It was clear my duties were to train him up to be as good or better than me, and the requirements were that I train him while I maintain my 40 hours a week on contract (meaning overtime). I accepted thinking it was a good oportunity and I have been spread thin so it was about time to spread the work around. My boss has also spoken with me many times with long term expectations of me building the web team from the ground up.
I figured upon hiring the intern my boss would give me a title change and/or a raise for the extra responsibility either during the internship or after if the intern was hired full-time. But, upon being able to meet with him in the last week he told me "no", or at least, "if it is a title change, they don't always come with a pay raise." He used phrases like, "this is an opportunity to open others down the road" and "management/leadership take time." Whether he is meaning well or not, I felt I was in a position of guilt for thinking about a promotion, and told to be happy and look to the future.
I understand that this is an opportunity which is why I went through with it. I don't want to be ungrateful or seem like a huge ego young dev who thinks he deserves more than he's worth. But I also don't want to be taken advantage of.
I should also mention the internship is 2 months long, while if the intern is hired I will be training him intently for at least another year after.
Is an intern to train worthy of a raise and/or title change, either during or after a successful hire of the intern?
I'm a mid level web dev training an intern on overtime while maintaining my other 40hr responsibilities, my boss says I won't be getting a raise or title change, does training the intern merit a raise and/or title change?
new contributor, let me know how I can fix this up and I will.
