Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced system design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's team of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are seeking experienced managers who can perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client services, and following a competitive results-based pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our client list dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, expert consultants. Our commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for technical professionals that can show recognized certification in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect credentials. Progent will promote your talents, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for us to work with. If you happen to be adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using custom application utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven operational structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting firms is the excellence of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other crucial application, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major projects by combining the collective skills of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to perform the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income with regular commutes to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be done off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across Northern California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models. We complete the package by offering a full employee care program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging every month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t have strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
