Empirical research on the relationship between firm pay dispersion and workforce performance yields mixed findings. In an effort to disentangle the theoretical and empirical contradiction of pay dispersion research, this study examined the relationship between pay dispersion among R&D employees and firm R&D performance using employee-level pay data collected from US hightechnology firms during the 1997-2002 period. Our results revealed that the relationship between pay dispersion and firm R&D performance took an inverted U-shaped curve. Increasing the range of pay dispersion is beneficial at the beginning but once its range goes beyond a certain point, further increasing the range is detrimental. Unlike the authors' expectation, the negative effect of large pay dispersion is attenuated when the US economy was declining (i.e., in 2001 and 2002).
