Dear Inquiring:
This practice usually is reserved to upper management. The reason is theissue known as "equity theory."
Basically, when dealing with compensation, most people will make a judgmentas to its fairness.
The basic cornerstone for this assessment is one's own compensation, so youcan imagine the issues. Even within upper management, it's not perfect -- butupper management tends to understand the drill and realizes that all things arerarely equal -- due to education, performance, longevity and the like.
