    Pros

    At the Iowa State Univesity Seed Science Center, I work in the Germ Lab and the manager there is very flexible and allows me to be able to take any day off without questions asked.

    Cons

    There are many things to learn but once you get the hang of it. Its not so bad just overwhelming at first.
