Millennium: The Takeda Oncology Co.
Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. purchased Cambridge-based Millennium Pharmaceuticals for $8.8 billion in 2008. Instead of triggering an exodus of talent as often happens during an acquisition, the purchase led to an even stronger Millennium. The company has not only built a workplace that prizes collaboration and cross-cultural sensitivity, it has actively given back to the community through its Millennium Makes a Difference program. It was also ranked the No. 1 largest company by the Globe’s list of Top Places to Work in 2012.
Overall rank: 12
