Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person client work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements through information exchange and collaborative problem resolution.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul.
