Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class client services, and following a strong value-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our customer base rapidly while delivering professional services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients can expand your skills via cooperation with our group of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Our focus on providing network consulting and computer support to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals that can show recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential.

For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then clients expect credentials. We can broadcast your skills, but you need to have standard certifications for Progent to work with. If you stand strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, using proprietary application tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven operational structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The main factor that differentiates us from ordinary network support companies is the quality of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited top talent across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key areas, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of our support work can be done off-site, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to client requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are located throughout Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company models. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care program to promote the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging each month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
