The last couple of days of Scott Adams’ Dilbert strip very nicely reminded me that, back in my Google days, I had developed this suspicion that he was working in my department, under some assumed false identity, and recording our life at Big-G.
And, yes, thanks for asking: we had (several times) meetings about meetings too!
Because, of course, meetings are better than actually getting work done:
At Mesosphere, we have “no-meeting workdays” – Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays, between 1-5pm, it is greatly “discouraged” to invite Engineers to meetings.
Yet another reason why I love it here!
