    There has to be some way to have incentives for doing better (faster, stronger) work than your peers.  Especially when your peers recognize it.  Maybe even if it's just a way to march faster up the step system, I dunno.

    That's kind of why I was asking about things along the lines of the professional societies that recognize contributions to the field above and beyond what the average 9 to 5 engineer does.

    It may be a tricky problem, but I would think that having equal pay for everyone when work done is not necessarily equal could be equally divise as having the group recognize that, yes, Mr. Jones is a guru and he does share his insights on how to make the job better.
