    I have been working at Incyte as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice culture and crop of people - FTE's and Contractors alike! Incyte really takes care of their employees and rewards them with outstanding benefits and lofty compensation. Typical of pharma's, drug prices can command the highest price point the market will bear and when you are the only game in town as in the case of Incyte with the remedy for a few rare blood disorders, patients and third-party payers must pay through the nose. As such, compensation packages for most workers are significantly higher than industry averages with most MD's making over $500K not including stock options. With $24 billion dollars in the bank, it's no surprise departmental budgets are bloated with zero caps on spending enabling many employees to travel lavishly to events with no restrictions to itinerary. New hires receive four weeks vacation from the get-go and for the most part few workers actually put in 40 hour weeks. Typically on Friday afternoons after 2 PM, the campus is virtually a ghost town! Incyte FTE's also get to enjoy many after hours events and parties onsite. But, hey, it's the pharma business and that's probably why pharma's tend to be public companies. Contractors can be on-boarded for years and while many may never be fortunate to become FTE's, most are happy to be there and doing the heavy lifting.

    Cons

    Getting hired at Incyte can be a challenge and as such, it's almost imperative to know someone in the management ranks working here. It's fairly common for new managers to hit the desk and then refer in their former colleagues and friends who most often will get hired with little fan fare. In other words, good schmoozing skills can really pay off here!

    Advice to Management

    HR could be more diligent in interviewing and screening practices to ensure it isn't nepotism that gets people in the door; but, that overall they recruit and retain the absolute best talent. Incyte is probably the only pharma in the world that doesn't drug screen or sex offender check employees and it leads one to wonder about the thoroughness of their background investigations. Good or bad, these are policies that only senior management can amend. The company should also consider including their many loyal contractors and consultants in company-sponsored activities. In conclusion, Incyte is a great organization from the perspective of FTE's, but not necessarily the best organization to stick around in if doing the heavy lifting under contract.
