Once a great company to work for...
Pros: great benefits due to parent company (harper collins)
Cons: may not be in grand rapids in the near future.
Zondervan has been a wonderful company for over 75 years. They have been a staple in the Grand Rapids area. However, due to a recent merger with Thomas Nelson, the company has gone through many changes; mostly for the worse. The culture has dramatically changed and the feeling amongst many of the employees, along with actions taken by HarperCollins – more... (parent company), is that all of the Zondervan employees will be replaced by Thomas Nelson employees and those jobs will all be in Nashville.
In less than 5 years, the "Grand Rapids presence" of Zondervan will most likely be a sign on a small building with a couple employees and/or a Grand Rapids phone number.
Very sad to see the demise of this once grand company. – less
