...for me is, management starts having more status meetings to find out what the problems are.

By then I start reporting in my status report and status meetings that I'm not working on any problems becasue I'm always in status meetings.

By the time we get to 3 status meetings a day they (Management) can't figure out why nothing is getting done.


Sounds so familar, don't forget the looking for a scapegoat meeting, that usually occurs after the failed deadline. It's all bullshit and the management shouldn't have deadlines, the software is done when it's done, hope all managers are watching this Wink | ;)
