I apologize for the duplication. – M. Tibbits Feb 24 '11 at 18:52
no need to apologize. Even though duplicate questions get closed, their existence helps to populate the "frequently asked questions" english.stackexchange.com/questions?sort=faq . The more duplicates of a question that are asked, the higher it appears on that page. – nohat Feb 24 '11 at 19:21

Well is correct here. You need an adverb to modify the verb work.

"I work equally well", certainly. "Good" is an adjective, "well" is an adverb.
