What is the etiquette on dealing with a boardroom meeting that is exceptionally loud?
I work in a building that has several meeting rooms, each can hold up to 10-15 people and are all configured for voice and video conferencing. Unfortunately, one is located within 15 feet of my desk. There are meetings being held in the rooms every day, most of them are reasonable in terms of noise levels.
Every once in a while though, there will be a meeting where the participants are almost yelling into the conference phone or speaking quite loud in general. To the point where it interrupts my work flow.
My question here is asking what is the correct way to deal with this? The meeting rooms all have doors, which are never closed.
Can I simply get up and close the door?
To note, I am an intern and am located at the very bottom of the totem pole (if I'm even considered to be on the pole). I would not want someone to take my actions the wrong way, as quite often the people involved in these meetings are management personnel. Putting on headphones or using ear plugs is not an option.
I have not witnessed another person taking action on this, but many fellow employees have mentioned how loud they can get.
