    I have been working at Incyte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, no middle management overage issues that you'll find in big pharma, opportunity to take on larger role is there as you're asked to do more here based on their current growth rate and lack of headcount. Internal promotions seem to be part of the climate.

    Cons

    Tighter timelines then I have ever experienced in this industry. You are asked to do more with less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Generally pleased. Would welcome opportunity for a remote 1/2 day to help work-life balance.

    I worked at Incyte full-time

    Pros

    Pay but even this was not a "Pro" due to exteme work hours. If converted to hourly wages, would not have made minimum wage!!

    Cons

    Stressful work environment with unsupportive management, at times actually standing over you while you work. Needless to say, dysfunctional and demanding bosses, with a work/life of ziltch life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At the very least, treat your employees as you would want to be treated and work the hours that you demand of them.

    I worked at Incyte full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Always considered for internal promotions, they really identified the strengths of the worker and tried to promote those. There was mutual respect and the environment fostered dedication and hard work.

    Cons

    Limited company size and change in business direction caused a lot of layoffs. This would have been a great company to stick with long term, but they decided to pull out of the area where I live.

    I worked at Incyte

    Pros

    The company has good benefits and pay

    Cons

    Abrasive treatment from management so much so that it’s a revolving door for administrative coordinators and HR sits in on departmental meetings to preempt the bad behavior

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect is a two-way street

    I worked at Incyte

    Pros

    I worked in the product development division of Incyte when they were selling genomic databases. Everyone had a good time, customers were paying $M for data, not the low quality software that went with it, but hey everyone got to bask in the glory.

    Cons

    Product development was run by a bunch of people who had never done it before, and the majority of the engineers were contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do you think they are really going to read my 20 words and act on it? I seriously doubt dear!
