Progent is hiring consultants who have recognized credentials related to their special expertise.

In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts".

If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you need to have basic credentials for Progent to work with.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment 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 consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running custom software utilities to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing our business structures for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from typical network support firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled the best talent across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of our team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income because of regular drives to a physical office, and all driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of our support work can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is broadcast to streamline group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are situated across Northern California, but Progent is attracting a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care plan to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently engaging every month. We 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 marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
