By all reason, the fact that your experience has increased and that experience is specifically domain-specific experience in a given company SHOULD translate into a wage that simply cannot be matched by any other company… but that flies in the face of the received wisdom of business that employees must be arbitrarily interchangeable or else they become a liability to the company.
