I worked at Lexicon Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 8 years)
-Great coworkers -always had top-notch equipment available -small company atmosphere allowed everyone to make an impact
-constant fear of burn rate -severed the research component to save money to focus on two compounds being pushed to an NDA -other compound lost in preclinical will never see any further focus
Advice to Management
the new CEO seems to have a good track record for a company at this stage. he should be able to make the remaining two compounds in the clinic reach market but there is no long term science remaining at the company
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lexicon Pharmaceuticals (The Woodlands, TX) in December 2012.
