What is an organization like where everyone is very busy?

Should I be concerned to join an organization where people's calendars are filled up months in advance?

I am interviewing for a senior role at a large multi-national and found out during one of the interviews that it can be very hard to make appointments with people at short notice. People's diaries seem to be filled up months in advance and everyone seems to be going from meeting to meeting all the time. I am concerned that it may be hard to build solid relationships when entering such an organization, where people are not available. I am also concerned that it can be difficult to make immediate impact when people are not available. Has anyone experienced an organization like this and if so, did you find a way to make this work for you? Should I consider this to be an an "alarm-bell" for the role? Is there effective way to dive deeper into this within the organization to find out more?
