Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals with CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced network architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on Progent's staff of desktop service specialists and remote support experts. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive client services, and following a competitive value-focused fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our client list rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer list.

For an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and computer support to small companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that have verifiable credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent will broadcast your skills, but you must have a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a better professional by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, using specialized software tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that separates us from other network support firms is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top talent covering a wide range of technical areas. Be it 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 jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose income because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and any driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of our support services can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some of our team members do remote support only.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our engineers work with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of network experts throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a full benefit program to promote the physical health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration groups match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring every month. We recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

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