    You can invest at either TIAA or Vanguard and there are a range of low-cost funds. There is also a Roth option if you want that. I'm guessing full-time employees also get a match.

    good employer match, beyond 3% match

    It won't start till certain years

    Not a great plan, they won't match to your contribution.

    Fairly good offering, though again, for as large of an institution it is, a larger contribution would match others in the industry.

    Good retirement benefits. You vest immediately. Columbia matches 3% to your voluntary retirement plan and after two years at Columbia, they contribute an additional 5% of your salary into your retirement plan.

    After two years of service you can contribute 3% of your salary and CU will match 3% in addition to another 5% they just give you.

    Horrible match, 3%, what a joke

    Vanguard and TIAA/CREF. University contributes some varying with seniority.
