Japanese term or phrase: Bandの高い
Context: Bandの高い勤続年数の長い方が昔ながらの方法でまったり仕事をしていて定時帰社しているのを見ると、新しい方法を身に付け効率よく仕事をこなしている為にどんどん仕事が振られてそれをこなす為に一生懸命仕事をしているのが馬鹿らしくなる。

Does it mean high job tile?

English translation:Senior level
Explanation:
I'm pretty sure this is just talking about senior levels of staff; if you think of a firm as having tiers of seniority, then, as you say, this is referring to those with 'high job titles' - who have been working in the firm for many years and hence have made their way up the seniority table.

Hope this helps!

So - senior level

Actually, thinking about it, "band" often refers to pay - as in, salary band. So Bandの高い could refer to someone in a high salary band, therefore "well paid". But I think "senior level" might still work, since seniority and salary in such close correlation in (many) Japanese companies.
Using "well paid" instead of "senior level" may well put a slightly different slant on the sentence though; I suppose it depends on overall context....

agree  Chizuko Heyer: I've never heard of this expression myself even colloquially, but it has to be this meaning judging from the rest of the sentence.
