Corporate leaders today report feeling that they must consistently barter to extract complicated agreements from people with power over industries or individual careers.

Case: How Fog Creek Software Pays Developers
1.) Fog Creek’s pay structure meets the legal requirements of equal pay for equal work effectively. Fog Creek pays all employees within the same skill level at the same pay rate. This eliminates the problem of finding an employee pay rate equilibrium, as all employees make the same rate, given they are on the same skill level. In regards to product markets, Fog Creek’s structure does not effectively meet these requirements. Due to the fact that Fog Creek pays all employees the same wage, and pays higher wages to keep good employee, their cost to make a product may fluctuate higher than their competitors.
