Progent is hiring technical professionals who have verifiable credentials in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your MCSE credential.

Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect certifications. We can broadcast your skills, but you need to provide basic credentials for us to work with.

Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running custom software tools to deliver the highest quality of service, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and retaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from other network support companies is the high caliber of our consulting team.

Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the work efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose income because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of our consulting work can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection through monthly workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, but we are building a rapidly growing team of consulting experts throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the package by offering a full employee care plan to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and operations teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. We lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
