I have been working at Lexicon Pharmaceuticals

Pros

Everyone in my department was friendly and helpful and wanted to help me learn. They had a cafe and a cafeteria that the company subsidizes so everything was about half price ($2 for an entree and sides) of what you would get it for if you eat out.

Cons

Low intern pay for the amount of work done. Volatile company, has gone through multiple rounds of lay offs.

Disapproves of CEO

    Started out well and then the opportunists and megalomaniacs turned it into just another biotech going nowhere.

    I worked at Lexicon Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    When LXRX opened, it was a fun place with all sorts of perks and the science was very cutting edge (at the time). The cafeteria was nice but really over the top for a non profitable biotech.

    Cons

    Sands is not to be trusted and many of the "managers" were med center retreads that couldn't find work without Arthur's help (and made directors). Quite a few careers were destroyed here by knee jerk reactions. Mouse house is long gone (at great expense) and the Star Trek themed building is an even bigger white elephant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Arthur, sell out or resign. It was a nice idea at one point but like the other post genomic bust companies, nobody is buying it now.
