Joining a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running custom software tools to deliver the highest quality of service, and by optimizing our operational structures for finding and keeping customers.
The most important factor that distinguishes us from other network support companies is the excellence of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited top talent across a broad array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our group of experts.
To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to do the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for in-person client work is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote support only.
Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to streamline group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.
Most of our consultants are situated throughout California, however we are attracting a rapidly expanding group of network professionals from across America. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and financial security of our employees and their families.
Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. We recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.
Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.
On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building close client relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t have excellent people skills or like working with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.
If all this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
