Progent is looking for technical professionals that have recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential does not ensure expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you need to have basic certifications for Progent to work with. In case you stand strongly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Working with the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, using specialized application utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by optimizing our business structures for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from other consulting firms is the high quality of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled top talent across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on major projects by combining the collective skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to do the job properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our support services can be performed off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is situated across Northern California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of network professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging every month. We lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not have excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

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