Working with Kipman reportedly got so bad that over 25 employees contributed to a document compiling similarly negative interactions with the intention of sending it to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. According to three sources, managers even warned others not to leave women alone with Kipman.

Insider previously detailed Kipman’s indecent behavior in a May report about Microsoft’s “golden boys,” a group of corporate leaders who have contributed to a toxic culture of harassment and abuse at the massive tech company. At the time, Microsoft didn’t confirm or deny the charges against Kipman, and internal emails to Microsoft staff seen by Insider concerning Kipman’s resignation make no mention of the events leading up to his departure.

Speaking to Kotaku, a Microsoft spokesperson would only say that organizational changes have been made to its mixed-reality team and that Kipman will leave the company to “pursue other interests” after assisting with a two-month transitional period.
