Kombinat VEB Carl Zeiss Jena was among the leading companies of the late GDR. At the end of the 1980's almost 70,000 employees worked in its divisions of optics, precision mechanics, and microelectronics. The Zeiss management was recruited by the chairman himself. Recruitment and promotion did not only depend on the professional qualification of a candidate but as well on his or her membership in the SED (Communist state party), gender, social background, political past, and moral conduct. The article shows that it became difficult to staff management positions in due time as non-professional criteria grew more and more important.
