Quickly Switch Between Home and Work Settings with Quick Config
Link: Quick Config - change quickly various settings of your computer
The application is offered as an MSI and in a portable format. The most interesting part, for me at least, is allowing for the easy change of proxy settings so that our staff laptops can switch between home/school use without having to go through:
Control Panel/Internet Options/Connections/Lan settings

Any recommendations for a similar utility for a MAC?

For Mac's, you could use either the built-in network location feature in OS X or one of the following free apps: Control Plane and AirPort Location.

We use an auto proxy configuration script (proxy.pac). You point the browser (or setup dns/dhcp entries) to the web hosted proxy.pac file and if it exists, it uses it, otherwise it uses no proxy. If you put the work in you can have a zero touch client config while still having the right proxy used wherever you are.
Works on Windows, Macs. Won't automate on iOS (but you can still use the proxy.pac)

I use PAC files in my schools, too. However I personally use a similar tool called Proxy Switcher for a number of reasons. Not as many options, but it autoswitches.
