Details About Work at Progent

Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's team of help desk service technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and offering a strong value-focused fee structure, Progent has managed to increase our client base rapidly while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common information base, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, expert consultants. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and computer help to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent can promote your talents, but you must have basic credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Working with the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running specialized application tools to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from typical network support firms is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to perform the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of daily drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting work can be done remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do remote support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to client requirements through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection via monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated throughout California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of network experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring each month. We recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building strong client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy working with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
