The average performer will hit the salary ceiling of geo3 in 4-6 years.

If still haven't promote before hitting ceiling, it basically means that any increase in workload is not compensated by any increase in pay. Coupled with inflation, pay will lag behind similar-age peers even more.

Also, the higher the base pay, the higher the increment. The faster one promote, the earlier one can hit the geo5/5a ceiling (which isn't too shabby)
2022] GEO3: 3900-6250
[2022] GEO4: 4800-7700
[2022] GEO5: 5150-8250

This is the current salary range for geo3-5. Assuming an average performer gets a $200 annual merit increment you're looking at ~11 years to go from 3900 - 6250. How would a person be able to hit the salary ceiling in the time u claim. Anyway, for the average performer at the very latest, they will get promoted in their 7th year. If you're taking longer than that, "bottom of the barrel" applies.

As I mentioned, the wide salary range gives rise to unhappiness. If geo4 was split into 2, from 4800 - 6200 and 6200 - 7700, what would be lost?
