We can promote your skills, but you should provide basic credentials for Progent to market.

Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced system architecture, using specialized application tools to enable the highest level of service, and by streamlining our business models for attracting and keeping clients.

Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the collective skills of our team of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income because of daily drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person client work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is published to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection via periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional company models. We complete the package by offering a full benefit program to ensure the health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth 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 stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
