Additional Facts Concerning Work at Progent

Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

The point is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will market your talents, but you must have a baseline of certifications for Progent to market.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, using custom application tools to enable the highest quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational structures for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from ordinary network support companies is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital application, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the collective skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to do the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue with regular commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site customer work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The best part is that much of our consulting work can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to client requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is located across California, but we are attracting a quickly growing group of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the deal by offering a full benefit plan to ensure the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our marketing and administration groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
