You’re going to get called into status meetings. Eventually, you might even lead them.
Yes, they are an incredible waste of time, money, and resources.
But if you’re not paying for them, try to enjoy yourself. Or, at least do something productive in the background (like learn to code).
These meetings are not going away.
And when you go off on your own, you’ll never have to do ’em again.
