The Motion Picture Association (MPA) is an American trade association representing the five major film studios of the United States, as well as the video streaming service Netflix. Founded in 1922 as the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA) and known as the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) from 1945 until September 2019, its original goal was to ensure the viability of the American film industry. In addition, the MPA established guidelines for film content which resulted in the creation of the Production Code in 1930. This code, also known as the Hays Code, was replaced by a voluntary film rating system in 1968, which is managed by the Classification and Rating Administration (CARA).
MPA has poor management as an employer, a toxic working environment, personal cuts, and outdated technology, a former consultant shared a review at glassdoor.com
"Management is poor. Politics is so engraved into the culture it is hostile. Distrust between departments is deep. Studios hate the "c" level executive that has ruined relationships and tasks on hand. Everyone plays dumb. Everyone will back stab you. They will fire you for no real cause other than politics or management maneuvering and or budgets (cuts are plenty). The Washington DC office has no idea what is going on and kept in the dark until it is too late. no upward mobility. technology is old."
