that - my last day @ Agilent is on 12/17. I went out and found a much better job with better benefits, more money, 2 for 1 stock match (no holding period), commission, etc. for virtually the same type of work and 3 times less the workload. Agilent made out like a son of a bitch from me (I did three people's work for the price of 1). Party is over for them, turnover increasing, and I think "Ned" is gonna lower the boom on them anyway. Hope "A" goes on the block - got 200 shares. Good luck to you!
