The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will market your skills, but you should have basic certifications for us to work with.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, using custom application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining proven operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from other consulting firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective skills of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to do the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that much of Progent's support services can be performed remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our team members do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located throughout California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing group of network experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our marketing and administration teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not have excellent people skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If all this sounds right for you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
