Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers expect credentials. We will promote your skills, but you need to have basic certifications for us to market. In case you are adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using custom application utilities to deliver the highest quality of service, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from other consulting companies is the high quality of our service staff. Among the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited top expertise across a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for in-person client work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to client requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, current engineer availability is broadcast to streamline team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated across California, however we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional company structures. We complete the deal by offering a full benefit program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our sales and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent lately marked 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 sales operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t have excellent people skills or like working with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
