    I worked at Incyte full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and high salaries. These don’t offset the cons however.

    Cons

    The commercial organization is managed by a group of socially awkward men who thrive off of those that drink their kool aid, play the political “ballgame” and kiss the ground they walk on. There are some very hard working people at Incyte that are typically pushed aside, minimized and devalued as they don’t engage in managements petty play. The overall environment is extremely toxic and reinforces the concept that men reign supreme in the pharma world. HR is well aware of these pervasive issues however, turn a blind eye to it all.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership should focus on the important things like being strategic to drive business instead of clock watching their employees (yes they actually do this), playing games to make themselves look better and throwing people under the bus to get ahead. In addition in this new day Incyte should provide some gender bias training to those that “run” the show.

    I worked at Incyte full-time

    Pros

    Incyte is a company driven by science and helping patients with cancer live better lives. It pays very well.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is very white, male and old school. There is a lot of bias when it comes to promotions, awards and assignments. Actual true marketing expertise is not required (or even respected) when working in the marketing department. Over-simplification and always saying "yes sir" gets you far.

    Advice to Management

    Mix in a few females and provide your males with some gender bias training.
