    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 have been working at Lextant Corp full-time (More than 3 years)

    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

    I worked at Lextant Corp full-time

    Pros

    Creative environment, a lot of great people and a good variety of clients.

    Cons

    The business is growing and hasn't quite worked a lot of things out. The project process and communication in some areas is less advanced than in other areas - so it really depends which group you are looking to work with. Some get more variety than others, some travel a great deal more than others, so the experience can be quite different per person. I think that the company has a lot of potential, but there can be a lot of pointing fingers and passing blame versus working on solutions to prevent issues in the future. I also think that the different "roles" are lacking clear definition which leads to confusion and frustration. I think it's a good idea to ask about project life cycles, process, and specific role definitions (and overlaps) when looking at working for this company.

    Advice to Management

    I would consider stronger role definitions and provide more leadership coaching to those in management as well as those being put in "leadership" roles on a team. It can be difficult for anyone to lead when they aren't given any authority but are held responsible for all aspects of the project.

    I worked at Lextant Corp full-time

    Pros

    Very intelligent, nice people — great office space in downtown Columbus — some interesting clients to work with. Culture below management was great! Made many friends.

    Cons

    When teams were assigned to a job, seemed to be more who was available than who was the best fit for the job. Never felt my job was secure if I wasn't billing my full 40 hours. Management seemed aloof.

    Advice to Management

    If you say this is "our company" please then realize we feel like it is and want to feel valued.

    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.
