    I have been working at Obsidian Security full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I feel really valued at the company, I think they really value technical skills and it has a great engineering culture as a consequence. The company is about changing cyber security rather than just cranking the handle on a generic product.

    The leadership team at Obsidian is fantastic, our CTO recently said to me in a private conversation that he wants Obsidian to be "leadership factory". I really see that in the way that the leadership team approach delegation and team autonomy without losing accountability.

    The company is growing really fast so I'm constantly exposed to new skill sets and ways of thinking, and consequently feel like I'm growing a lot in the role. Using exciting new technologies and there's a lot of freedom of choice when it comes to how we build as well as what we're going to build.

    People really care about what we are building, and as a result, people always go the extra mile.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of being a fast moving start-up it can sometimes be a bit chaotic, but the leadership are responsive and proactive. We were probably too large and flat, consequently we moved into small cross functional teams. This is made a huge difference, and I've really enjoyed having ownership over a part of the product.
