How Many Work Meetings Do You Have Per Week?

Meetings can be a mixed bag of productive communication and wasted time. Many of us are required to attend them on a regular basis and have to work them into our busy schedules, while others are free from any organized gatherings at the office. How many mandatory meetings do you typically have each week?

I wish we had meetings more often...we only have them once per month and so many things happen in between meetings that it's hard to keep track of what we need to discuss.

Rarely my work isn't big into communication, ha.

3-4 per day on average!

I used to wish we had more meetings. We only meet every few months when my department head feels like he has things to tell us, and they’re a joke – you can’t get anything done if you only meet that rarely. There are so many issues that go unsolved, and I thought if we met regularly we could have a chance to hash it out. But lately I am more pessimistic and I think it’s not worth trying to change things that won’t change, anyway.

Some weeks I spend the whole weeks in meetings or on conference calls (where I can usually multi-task). I would like to have a job where I don't have more than 1 or 2 meetings per week, I would be more productive.

We have 1 official meeting every Monday morning for the entire office, and numerous conference calls throughout the week that I'm usually always in on, but not everyone is.

I wish we had more because NO ONE knows anything in my dept.! It drives me crazy.

Rarely. But when we do have meetings, they are doozies.

It depends on the week but 2 for sure every week and some weeks I do a meeting everyday.

i feel like i have meetings all day long - if it's just one per day then it's a VERY slow day.

2-3 a week or one a day i don't mind them most of the time i'm the kind of person (as long as its not a week where i'm stupidly swamped) where i'd prefer a meeting to working

At least one a week. A staff meeting, it sucks, its long and boring and one employee hijacks it and won't shut up and talks for sometimes 2 hours!

I usually have 2-3 a day. Some are internal meetings, but most are conference calls with clients.
