More Information Concerning Work at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks professionals to join our staff of helpdesk support specialists and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is looking for experienced managers able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing attentive client care, and offering a strong value-based pricing structure, We have been able to increase our client base dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can enhance your skills via interaction with our group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Our commitment to providing network consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to work intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants that can show verifiable certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent can promote your skills, but you must have basic certifications for Progent to market. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

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

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable professional by improving your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational models for finding and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from other consulting companies is the excellence of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of our team of experts.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to do the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office, and all driving you do for on-site client jobs is based on your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated across Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing group of network professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging each month. Progent recently marked the delivery 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 marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building close client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably not a good fit.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the future of network consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Technical Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a well designed and executed information system is a pivotal factor for accelerating any company's success, and we follow this belief in our own system infrastructure.
