Additional Facts Concerning Work at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees to join Progent's team of helpdesk support specialists and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for talented administrators who can operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a strong value-based pricing model, We have managed to increase our client list rapidly while providing consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal customer list.

If you are a network professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients can expand your skills through interaction with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can promote your skills, but you should provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from typical network support companies is the excellence of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key application, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of our group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of daily drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site client work is based on your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is situated throughout California, however we are attracting a rapidly expanding group of network professionals throughout America. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care program to promote the health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our marketing and administration groups match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. We lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
