    I worked at Lextant Corp (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Place to Learn.
    It really is a wonderful nurturing family.
    You get to work on a variety of different projects for some big name clients.

    Cons

    Company struggles to grow outside of automotive industry and acquire new clients. Part of this stems from brand identity and external/public endeavors. They do so much cool stuff it's a shame that they don't brag about it more.

    I worked at Lextant Corp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Get to work on a range of projects, for different industries. Associates are smart, engaged, and interesting people. You can gain experience (that I recommend you use to promptly find another job, within 1-2 years, max).

    Cons

    Leadership may be skilled in their topic area, but do not know how to manage people, which creates a chaotic and confusing atmosphere. Salaries are well below average, because they look to hire designers fresh out of college as interns, and only provide limited pay raises.

    Advice to Management

    Hire actual leaders who can effectively deal with people. Respect your associates - the people who are actually doing all the work, and lining your pockets.

    I have been working at Lextant Corp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic place to start your career, rub elbows with industry heavy weights, and learn some on the ground research skills for a year or two.

    Cons

    A general lack of intentional/proactive leadership coupled with an equal lack of willingness to let leaders/leadership emerge on it's own leaves Lextant spinning it's wheel rather than gaining forward momentum.

    Advice to Management

    Find someone(s) to focus on internal development while current leadership maintains their focus on external relationship management.

    Pros

    Truly a great place to work in Columbus. Lextant has great clients that span automotive, consumer packaging, finance and medical. The work we do is unique and innovative. The employees that work at Lextant are smart creative thinkers that are dedicated to the work they do. Our culture is fun and progressive. During the week you can see great work being done, employees having a Nerf war and good use of the beer tap.

    Cons

    Employees could have a better understanding of processes and business landscape

    Advice to Management

    Keep innovating and adapting as the company continues to grow

    Pros

    This is my first job out of college and I couldn't be happier. I have been here for two years and people ask me if I still like it here and I can honestly say I love it! I have never felt so good about coming into a work place that I actually enjoy. Our work hours are flexible and are a good balance of a work/life balance. I always feel comfortable talking to my boss or my VP or CEO if I need to. The work we do is across the board from automotive clients to financial institutions to CPG clients.

    Cons

    You have to like nerf gun fights

    I have been working at Lextant Corp full-time

    Pros

    I've worked other places and Lextant has a competitive compensation and benefits program. The company is growing so there are opportunities to move up. A great new studio space with amenities. Great clients and project work. A place you can learn a lot and grow a career.

    Cons

    Some growing pains. Workload can be intense at times but that's expected in a professional services firm.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on employee engagement and communication.

    I worked at Lextant Corp (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is where I learned my craft. I really appreciated the experience that I gained working with savvy practitioners on complex projects. The environment was fast-paced and I was able to learn innovative research techniques from some of the pioneers in the industry. I also really enjoyed being able to travel the world with clients and learn more about being a better consultant and practitioner.

    Cons

    As a small company, there weren't a lot of vacancies at the top. I suppose I wasn't sure about my career path, but many of my contemporaries have moved up in the organization, so perhaps they've already developed a way to move talent up through the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to team members at every level. The culture was really building and it made it easy for me to bond with my team members. It feels like a really progressive, family business and you wouldn't want to lose that as you grow.
