#1 Organizational Culture is a double-edged sword.

#2 Don't know what to make of this. Currently E9's base who's senior on time in rank, and they all know who the big dog that they deal with is. They're all technically junior to a brand new butter bar, but woe to the 2nd looie that crosses a division or higher level CSM. Once sarge makes a call to placement, our gallant young officer finds himself holding an educational all expenses paid trip to Kiska or McMurdo, with plenty of time to think about things.
Evidently this is about straightening out the pecking order.

#3 Trying to shoehorn an 18th Century military social structure on a 20/21st Century military. It doesn't work well. Yep, a 20 year plus senior non-com with a bachelors degree (required according to the personnel folks) taking orders from an 01-03 with far less practical experience and a similar college degree.

The magic answer is grade creep. Not. However, that's what they did on the commissioned side. Check the ratio of GOs to enlisted in WWII to today.

The last place they'll 'modernize' will be personnel. Too messy, till you really blow a big one. Then its easier to make institutional changes.

#4 Spreadsheets and MBAs.
Inventing new rates means one will be paid less.
