Altman uploaded an image of himself wearing an OpenAI visitor badge on messaging platform X on Sunday with the caption: "first and last time i ever wear one of these."
Altman's dismissal enraged current and former employees concerned about how the abrupt management change would affect an upcoming $86 billion share sale.
According to The Information, Brockman, OpenAI's former president and co-founder, also came to the workplace on Sunday. As part of the management move, Brockman stood aside as board chairman and announced his resignation on Friday.
If Altman returns to OpenAI, Microsoft (MSFT.O), its biggest sponsor, is considering taking a seat on the board, according to the Information, citing two people familiar with the discussions.
According to the source, Microsoft may join OpenAI's board of directors or serve as a board observer without voting power.
