More Information Concerning Work at Progent

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on our team of help desk support technicians and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is hiring talented administrators who can operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and offering a strong value-based fee structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer list dramatically while providing professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common information base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge via interaction with our staff of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show verifiable credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you need to provide basic credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be adamantly against the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable professional by improving your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top professional experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, using proprietary software utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates Progent from ordinary network support companies is the quality of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of daily drives to a physical office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting work can be performed remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable time. In fact, some Progent team members do remote support only.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located throughout California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly growing group of network experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business models. We enhance the package by providing a full employee care program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. We lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong client relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
