It seems to me that having your salary dropping by $50,000 would constitute being paid less: "A firm won’t bring in a seventh-year and pay them less, Cody said, but their salary may go from $225,000 to $200,000 or even $175,000.

After the 7th year, many of us look least at the money and more at the quality of life. I'm fine taking $50k less within a good collegial firm structure. Frankly, I have always felt salaries were way too inflated and has been the result of many a firm downfall. Before being truncated because of an arbitrary year, firms, and those who work to place them there, may want to expand their definitions and scope and talk to the 7 plus years dripping with experience and solid life skills.
