Team

Incyte is committed to promoting an environment where our colleagues are fulfilled and valued. We promote a company culture based on scientific excellence as we seek to create new treatments; we are creative in our development strategies; and we seek positive collaboration with each other. Working collaboratively is of the utmost importance as we aim to change the treatment landscape for patients with cancer and inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.

“There aren’t redundancies in roles at Incyte. Every one of us has a specific role to play, and you have to do that in order for the company to be successful and for patients to be helped. We’re encouraged to provide solutions and ideas that will impact the company and ultimately the patient. No idea, regardless of how aspirational, is ever laughed at or frowned upon. It’s actually encouraged.”

—Mary Beth Rush, Director, Consumer Marketing

Incyte offers a competitive compensation package, which allows 100% of global Incyte employees to participate in the Annual Incentive Compensation Plan as well as annual equity grants. We seek to ensure it remains competitive by benchmarking against our peers several times annually as well as reviewing compensation twice per year to confirm that our employees are being compensated fairly, equitably and in accordance with our pay structures and job levels.

Over the years, we have added numerous benefits to support our colleagues in their professional as well as personal endeavors. A competitive benefits package is offered, which includes an option to participate in our Employee Stock Purchase Plan for both full-time and part-time employees working at least 20 hours per week. Our industry-leading health insurance coverage is 100% covered for full-time employees and is 95% subsidized for part-time employees working at least 20 hours per week in the U.S. A healthcare resource program is another one of many complimentary benefits provided by Incyte in the U.S., which offers broad assistance with a variety of healthcare and insurance-related issues to help colleagues make more informed healthcare decisions.

The benefits package also includes many complimentary tools for health. These may include on-site flu shots and learning opportunities that are often offered on-site, including nutrition, wellness and financial planning seminars. Additionally, Incyte offers office-based group fitness classes at U.S. Headquarters as well as competitions that promote healthy living, such as the 6-week Activity Challenge. 

Incyte is committed to supporting our colleagues as they plan their professional development. Opportunities for growth are provided through challenging job assignments, performance management, training and tuition reimbursement. These opportunities enhance career aspirations and job satisfaction as well as personal enrichment.

Many professional development opportunities are organized by department. For example, the E.D.G.E. (Empowerment, Development, Growth, Engagement) Program seeks to connect and empower Incyte employees in the U.S. Business Team to foster professional growth and leadership. This is accomplished through speaker programs and networking opportunities, featuring internal and external leaders, mentorship opportunities, and increased awareness of professional development opportunities.

In the U.S., Leadership Development Training is provided to managers that are new to Incyte, employees who were recently promoted to managers and those individuals that have been identified as potential leaders.  Additionally, classes in presentation skills and emotional intelligence are offered throughout the organization as well as the Insights Discovery Workshop.

In Europe, managers are eligible for selection to participate in a training program, which includes multiple modules with unique focus areas. A team effectiveness workshop is in place for teams to help improve communication, accountability, decision-making and overall performance. The Insights Discovery workshop seeks to improve internal and external communication. In addition, the Challenge Academy is a program aimed at challenging employees through specific projects. 

Globally, all full-time employees are eligible for tuition reimbursement as well as on-site learning opportunities, such as Lunch and Learns wherein colleagues can interact with others in the organization and benefit from their knowledge and different perspectives.

We are committed to promoting a collaborative, innovative and inclusive work environment at which everyone can contribute to their fullest potential.

We appreciate one another's differences and strengths and are proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer. Incyte values diversity of backgrounds and perspectives. We do not discriminate based on race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, military and veteran status, sexual orientation or any other protected characteristic as established by federal, state or local laws. Further, we have policies in place that prohibit harassment of all kinds. At Incyte, we prohibit retaliation in all forms and are committed to encouraging a culture where employees can freely ask questions and raise concerns. Please see our Code of Conduct for more information.

Incyte is a proud corporate member of the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association. This membership provides employees with discounted membership, networking events and training opportunities.

Our management team makes themselves available to all employees, and members of our Executive Management Team prioritize lunch with new U.S. employees within the first six months of employment. Our CEO, Mr. Hoppenot, values face-to-face interactions and so he shares lunch with different employees throughout the year. In Europe, all new hires travel to our European Headquarters office for an induction program to help facilitate a smooth onboarding.  Our quarterly global Town Hall events include presentations by executive management and allow for Q&A at the end of each. Our open-door culture allows for continuous ad-hoc feedback and an excitement for innovation in all departments, not just within discovery and development.

Our “Innovation at Incyte” program (I2) promotes innovation by allowing employees of any department to submit any innovative approach, tool, or technology that may be meaningful for Incyte and our patients. There is a competitive review process every 6 months and winners are then chosen and provided the resources and necessary funding to implement their plans.

At the heart of Incyte's business is the value we place on improving the world's health, and a high level of environmental, health and safety performance is another important expression of this value. It is our goal to conduct business in a manner that compromises neither the health of people nor the state of the environment. It is our policy to comply with all applicable environmental health and safety (EHS) regulatory requirements and seek to continually improve our EHS management systems. A strong safety culture is a fundamental part of how we work, and our philosophy is that everyone at Incyte has a responsibility to create and maintain a safe and healthy workplace with a goal to reduce risk and prevent injuries. Our management team recognizes this responsibility and is committed to providing the resources necessary to achieve this goal.
