You would think that the pay structure in most companies would match current market data. Unfortunately, it is not always the case and not because organizations would not want it that way. External events can change the market quick and create temporary spikes based on talent demand. Many organizations will be disciplined and not react to those changes. When we see a mismatch, it is typically a temporary supply and demand issue for specific industries and disciplines. In most instances, companies will be willing to take more time to fill a job opening and even lose a few employees to a hot job market to not turn their cost structure upside down or generate disgruntled employees. They are aware of the consequences of increasing the salary range for specific positions while keeping other similar ones the same.
