    I worked at Incyte full-time

    Pros

    Good salaries, overall package is not fantastic.

    Cons

    Managers are appointed with no proper management training or even skills. Company has no vision and employees are left with no guidance on what to do. Those who have earlier experience on how to get the job done and document it are not listened.

    Pros

    Company has good pipeline prospects. There is autonomy in the job. Compensation and benefits are good.

    Cons

    As the company grows, feeling of cohesion gets lost. Politics. Some people have no idea what they do or should do. Teamwork and spirit lacks.

    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.
