These values are important to us because our way of working is less structured than that of many other organizations.

As you will have noticed, those who work at BIGFISH MANILA are referred to as “co-workers” and not “employees”. This may seem a little odd to begin with, but as most people quickly come to understand, our terminology is symbolic of a special mindset – one which says we all have a contribution to make to the success of the company, and that every single role is important in its own way.
There are many jobs to be done, and our organization has a knack of bringing out the best in people. Or… to put it more precisely, providing an arena in which people can discover and reveal the best in themselves.
