Please expand & read video description!
The views & opinions in this video are 100% my own and do not express the views & opinions of Microsoft.

I was laid off from Microsoft on 7/17/2014 along with thousands of other talented people. I had an amazing 15 years at Microsoft and I will honestly miss working there and I'm still in shock over being laid off.

Do not ask me to reveal Microsoft secrets or ask me questions about future projects! I take my NDA very seriously and would never violate it. The emotions and opinions in this video are based on public knowledge and NOT internal information. I would ask that you please respect that.

When I say "I don't agree with the direction Microsoft is going" I'm only speaking from public knowledge of 18,000 people being laid off. I have no knowledge of the companies internal strategic direction nor would I share it if I did so please do not ask.

I also would like to state that Microsoft is a great company and they are doing their best to ensure the 18,000 employee's that were laid off have enough of a buffer to go out and find a new job. They are doing more then they are required to by law and for that I commend them. It's little cancellation when I was planing to give my life to that company and I'm still upset but people need to know that they are doing their best to ensure people are taken care of during their transition and this is why I am not 'mad' at them.

Also I would like to clarify in the video that when I say 'I have a few months to figure things out' that doesn't mean my resources will be exhausted in a few months. Microsoft is taking care of us for a period of time to allow us to transition. It just means I will start the job hunt at that point if progress is not being made on my own. I would never do anything last minute or exhaust my resources without another plan and jeopardize my family.
