Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, data protection, and virtual servers.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show recognized credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE certificate.

If you know your field, then the majority of those tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your talents, but you need to have standard certifications for us to work with. In case you stand strongly against the concept of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting work can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do remote support exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to client needs via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored.

We recently marked the providing of support 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.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t have strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.
