Thinking of switching over to the private sector, but how much red tape is there in the private sector actually? Are teams more empowered to make their own decisions, or is everything still decided by a few bosses?

Having the right skills for private sector is another thing since my experience is more related to social sci/society...but I can try to pick up new skills I guess.
Don't think just jump first. Every day you spend in the system is another day wasted when you could be learning a new skill in private. Not to mention your age is increasing. If you're that unsure then just stay and farm out the rest of your years. Basically most of the people I encounter mentally resigned themselves to staying in but of course there are a few exceptions.
