Pretty positive its electric. Can I ask why you NEED a manual for work? Electric would be so much easier and faster!

Where I live they loan you a portable electric pump if you work.  I think it depends on where you live.

Most times a manual will not be enough if you will be working FT. You should get a good electric pump :)

I just figured i wouldnt have to lug it in & take up so much space. Plus i could do it in the bathroom.

I got a dual Medela hospital grade pump, they do also have manual, but I think they will try to give you the electric if you are working, and I do believe mine had the pieces to use as a manual pump too. They gave me mine, it was not a loan out. I got it brand new and they told me that they could not give it to someone else when I was done with it. I asked if they wanted it back when I was done because I know how expensive they are, but in the long run, it is so much cheaper to give a woman a nice electric breast pump than to provide over a hundred dollars worth of formula every month for a year.

Most of them don't take up much space at all, they're usually housed in a bag thats smaller than a diaper bag =)

And they really should provide you with a space other than a bathroom (in fact I think its a law)
