In practice, some of our team members do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated.

A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology.

Customers rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul.
