    Bain has an excellent 401K plan from Vanguard with very low fees. Bain contributes 4.5% independent of whether the employee contributes. This amount increases after three years. It is 100% vested immediately.

    Automatic contribution of 4.5% is fine but nothing to write home about. I've had previous employers match up to the limit, which means much more at my current pay level. Good thing is there is no vesting period.
