Our focus on delivering network consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.
Progent is looking for consultants that have verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no justification for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will broadcast your skills, but you should have standard certifications for us to market. In case you are adamantly against the concept of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on major projects by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.
To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to do the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a physical office, and all driving you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The best part is that most of our consulting work can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.
Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.
The majority of our team is located across California, however Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their relations.
Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.
Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.
Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not have strong people skills or like working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is probably not a good match.
If this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
