Additional Facts About Opportunities at Progent

Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on our team of helpdesk support specialists and remote support professionals. Also, We are looking for talented managers able to operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and following a competitive results-based pricing structure, We have been able to expand our customer list dramatically while providing consulting 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 team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our clients can expand your knowledge via interaction with our staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and computer help to small companies will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants who can show recognized certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a credential can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you need to have basic credentials for us to market. If you stand adamantly against the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Joining the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized application utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational structures for attracting and keeping clients.

The main factor that separates Progent from typical consulting companies is the high caliber of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective skills of our team of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to perform the job properly. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange 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 drives to a physical office, and all driving you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our consulting services can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to client requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, current consultant schedules are published to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via periodic team meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our team is located throughout California, however Progent is building a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals throughout America. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If this seems right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
