The employees who threatened to resign have demanded the removal of OpenAI’s board members. OpenAI employees say that if their demands are not met, they will resign from the group and join Microsoft’s AI team. Let us tell you that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella had informed on Monday that Sam Altman and Greg Brockman are being associated with the company’s AI venture.

Sam Altman is one of the founders of OpenAI. On November 17, the board of OpenAI suddenly decided to remove him from the post of CEO. Sam Altman was included in a Zoom meeting and informed about his termination from the company. OpenAI’s board alleged that Sam Altman was incompetent and the company could not trust him. After this, OpenAI President Greg Brockman also resigned from the post and separated from OpenAI. Now, the way 505 employees have threatened to resign en masse, it has become clear how large a number of employees appreciate the work of Sam Altman and Greg Brockman at OpenAI. Employees are said to be extremely unhappy with the way Sam Altman was removed and Greg Brockman resigned. If employees resign en masse, Microsoft is likely to benefit greatly from it.
Earlier on Sunday, it was reported that in view of the dissatisfaction among the employees of OpenAI, the company’s board has once again started trying to bring back Sam Altman, but then a new CEO was appointed. At the same time, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella had announced the addition of Sam Altman and Greg Brockman to his company. This confirmed that the news of Sam and Greg going back to OpenAI was just a rumor. Now everyone’s eyes are on whether OpenAI is able to resolve the resentment of its employees or they give a big blow to the company by resigning en masse.
