Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's team of helpdesk service technicians and off-site support professionals. In addition, We are seeking experienced administrators who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and offering a competitive value-focused fee structure, We have managed to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

For a network professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your skills through cooperation with our group of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a credential can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect credentials. We will broadcast your skills, but you should have a baseline of credentials for us to work with. In case you stand adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top professional talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, using custom application tools to enable the maximum level of service, and by streamlining our operational models for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from typical consulting firms is the quality of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent across a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to do the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for in-person client work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to client requirements through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our engineers work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located across Northern California, however we are building a rapidly growing team of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring every month. We recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing close client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
