I have been working at Millennium Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Opportunities to make an impact exist for those willing to put in very long hours. OK benefits, decent compensation, strong emphasis on putting in "face time."

Cons

Turnover has jumped dramatically since the full integration with Takeda, cost cutting has the wrong focus on yearly budget instead of optimizing programs or the portfolio.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Integrate the entire company quickly, keeping parts of the organization as Millennum and others as Takeda weakens the overall culture.
