I've always believed that the billet for an operations officer aboard an Intrepid-class ship only warranted an ensign (the rest of the department consisted of enlisted personnel).
There was room for more Lieutenants on Voyager, though.
Janeway, however, apparently didn't need any more lieutenants in her chain of command. As master and commander of the Voyager (as well as the highest Starfleet authority figure in the Delta Quadrant), she was well within her right to determine its pecking order.

Another captain might have done things differently but that goes without saying in any situation.
