Engaging work and accommodating hours
Research Intern (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – June 12, 2016
The job itself was intensive as science always is, however, the work was enjoyable. Some days were monotonous because an experiment wasn't progressing quickly, or it was going poorly, or cultures were dying, etc. Day to day lab work is mostly about minuscule changes to data, however, when good results began to show it was like hitting the lottery. After weeks of care and maintenance and data input about a specific experiment, seeing it finally show promising results was amazing. However, the actual work being done day to day was ever changing. Each day there was so much to accomplish, from running tests, to experiment maintenance, to plating cultures. It was never boring to work in a lab. Management was lax so long as the work was quality and done on time. They were also very accommodating because most employees are students.
