Prabu is right. And the best part is that when/if the company ever realizes that productivity is going down because everyone is wasting time in meetings, what will they do? Have more meetings to discuss it!
I am going to get the wrath of God by saying this..
Wally, you got it all wrong..meeting is the most unproductive task that happens. That is the perfect escape place from work.. Don't try to avoid meeting, go to as many as you can..that way you can escape from real work..
