I worked at Lexicon Pharmaceuticals

Pros

Research opportunities to enter the industry. Easier transition from academia to industry in the area of drug discovery and pre clinical trials.

Cons

Constant pressure, lay offs, restructuring and turnover rate are the cons that are common for a struggling biotech. Located in the north part of houston although vibrant may not offer many options for someone from big cities in east or west.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Good luck on the difficult discovery process.
