Nice place to work. I worked there a long time ago though so I could tell you anything about working there today. I would go back if I had the opportunity.

Very Clickish

This company only respects people in upper management who are not team players whatsoever. If you are technical, they you have a fighting chance, otherwise not a good place to work at all compensation


Decent compensation


Terrible management

Only one sales person remains

Of the original 53 sales reps hired in 2016, only one remains. Everyone else, including managers, have left. Stock has plummeted, and all hopes were on diabetes med that never received approval, so everyone continues selling diarrhea med.

Productive work environment with poor management

Lexicon had a productive culture in place for many years. Unfortunately, upper management decisions with partnering early on prevented this promising biotech from succeeding.

Great place to work. Management issues.

Awesome place to work. Great atmosphere but management will talk to you like you’re less than if your a temp. All of the other staff are friendly and encouraging.

Terrible corporate climate

Unqualified leadership at every turn. Everyone doing a job they've never done before and it shows. Would not recommend this company to anyone, no matter their career interest.

I liked working there

I liked working at Lexicon Pharmaceuticals and meet some good people that I am still friends with today. The office was close to home. They had monthly social events. If an employee had an emergency and needed time off and did not have enough vacation time management rallied together and help the employee and their family.


Monthly events

Would not advise working at Lexicon.

Would not advise working at Lexicon. Management is self-promoting. Employee training and development is non-existent. EVP's are overly concerned with small expenditures, yet do not hesitate to spend several thousand dollars on luxuriant travel.


Pays well


Management and longer term employees are self-absorbeded

Enjoyed the Team I worked With

Many employees had been there for several years, had grown with the company, and were personally invested. I found that refreshing. There was a limited budget for FTEs, but an unlimited budget for contractors leading the company to hire on more contractors who were not invested in the company and were not diligent workers. Two divergent ends of the spectrum lead to an odd culture.

great corporate gatherings

while the company was a success, the workload was high but doable. They had a team base system of work, which was very helpful when finishing the work.

Management was week. Too much stress. Upper level science was often disrupted by minor things that were required. Animal care works were seen to run company and upper science was not efficient.

Great Start Up Company To Join

Pay and benefits are great. Team is wonderful. The only draw back is the small size, this limits the potential for growth in a career. A great place to work.

I appreciate that there was never a dull moment or assignment, Management wasn't very well preared in certain areas.

My manager recruited me from a different department, knowing he would be layed off in 6 to 10 months. He needed my organizational skils, in the end I had the department organized but also within the 6 month time frame he was let go and due to me being his admin I was let go as well. Great company very family oriented. Also, a great learning exerience for me.


i was able to lead with my organizational skills which are still in place today.


the office politicing was hard at times but always a challenge and i appreciate a challenge.
