Agilent offers core global benefits to all staff - but in addition to these, the Malaysian business offers:
Agilent creates great products. While I formerly worked on Electronics Test Instruments, I now work on Life Science Instruments. These instruments are being used by scientists around the world to detect and find a cure for cancer. It is an ever learning experience and life is never boring here in the Lab. We are constantly in search of new and innovative ways to get things done. It is very exciting, when after all the hard work, to see the things you design work and see the product shipped.
I joined Agilent in Penang in May 2013 as a Research and Application Scientist straight after I obtained my PhD in Medicinal Chemistry and Cancer Proteomics from the University of Melbourne. When I first joined, the team was still quite small yet we supported both the Research and Development team as well as Production team.
I am Sophia Teh, and I graduated from INTI International College Penang with a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting from the University of Wollongong, Australia. I have been with Agilent for a year and it is wonderful. Since the first day at work, my seniors have been very helpful and caring. They are willing to teach me even though they were extremely busy when I came in. They accepted me to the team and soon became good friends.
With a Degree from University of Malaya, I started my career in Agilent as a Process/Mechanical Engineer during the EMG (Electronic Measurement Group) product transfer in 2002. Then I moved on to support as a Project Engineer on outsourcing initiatives and then as an NPI Project Lead. Later I was offered an NPI manager position with a newly formed division in EMG. As a team, we managed to launch a total of 26 NPIs within two years. Currently, I’m with LSAG Vacuum division as a Manufacturing Engineering Manager managing teams in Malaysia and other parts of the world.
I joined Agilent in January 2014 as a Process Mechanical Engineer straight from University. Since day one, people around me have been very helpful in guiding me as a fresh graduate, and they always encourage me to explore my skills and talent. In a short period of time, I have been given a lot of opportunities to develop as an engineer. Agilent applies innovation as one of the company’s values, and over time it has nurtured me to always think out of the box and beyond.
Agilent Malaysia won the HR Grand Winner 2013 Award at the Human Resources Excellence Awards.
