You say you are a junior member. This probably means you don't have that much experience of different types of company.
A lot of people these days work in medium sized or large companies. These companies are not effective, in the sense that there is no meritocracy and many/most jobs are basically irrelevant. Over the last several decades, real production has either been automated or given to Asian manufacturing as part of a process of Western de-industrialization.
As a newcomer to this context it might surprise you to discover that the majority of well paid staff are adept at doing as little as possible.
Meetings are a strange symptom of this context. You will find that people often work overtime on seemingly useless tasks, such as clearing email backlogs, producing reports or adding things to Excel sheets. This overtime is not because the company needs anyone to do these tasks, but because the majority of people are in a constant struggle trying to make a show and justify their income at all. It becomes a race to the bottom for peer approval.
In a small, highly focused startup, or a creative art studio or some other well-motivated team, you will find the opposite. There is such an abundance of work that getting effective meetings and communication to happen at all can be a problem.
The fact that you have to endure rambling pointless meetings most likely indicates you are not in that latter context.
Essentially your choice is to go find a better company/work environment, or play the game. That game being: encourage the babble, call for follow-up meetings, emphasise the 'importance' of the subject matter being discussed, and in general do anything to fulfill the illusion that this drab workplace existence is in anyway fruitful beyond the paycheck that clears the corporate debt-slave's monthly obligation. If you have any self-respect and if you are free of debt, I suggest you elevate yourself out of that quagmire as soon as you can.
