Hi! I accepted an offer about two months ago and have been working full time since. (I know my title says intern, but I'm not anymore, it won't let me change it lol)
Now someone I know, with less experience, just got hired for the same position as me with the same salary AND a sign on bonus.

Should I renegotiate my salary/ask for a delayed sign on bonus, or is it too late? Any tips on what to do, or should I just deal with it?

You will never successfully negotiate your salary based on someone else’s salary. Know that and save yourself a lot of heartache. Negotiate when you get your offer, not after. Lesson learned.

2 fewer months of experience is the same amount of experience. I don’t think you’ll get much traction here, to be honest.

It’s annoying that you’re making equal to a junior as a mid, but it’s caused by two things. 1) You always make less from an internal promotion than a fresh hiring. It’s stupid but it’s how the industry works. 2) the other person’s initial offer as a fresh employee came during a time of increases employee leverage in the job market. Yours did not - plus you were an intern then, so even less so.
If you want to get the $$ you deserve you’ll need to leave. But if you can live on what you have now and think you can make good book work, consider sticking it out until you are SURE you are jumping to better opportunities and not just better money.

The point of a signing bonus is to convince you to take the job in the first place. You will be laughed out of the building if you ask for one two months in. They were better at negotiating than you this time. Learn from your mistakes and push harder for things like that next time you take a new job.

What should I do?
