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 (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.
