This is not uncommon.

While the new Escort-Carrier has more bridge officer slots, that are also - on average - not as high in rank as the bridge officers on the Atrox.

It's a layout mirrored in the Advanced Escort MVAM and Tactical Escort Retro as well:

Departments aside, compare;

Escort Carrier:
Ensign
Lieutenant
Lieutenant
Lieutenant Commander
Commander

Prometheus MVAM:
Ensign
Lieutenant
Lieutenant
Lieutenant Commander
Commander

And now the Tactical Retrofit:
Ensign
Lieutenant
Lieutenant
Lieutenant Commander
Commander

...Seeing a pattern?

Each of the above is a Retrofit escort, tailored to each of the three careers - Science, Tactical and Engineering.

Nothing has been devalued.
