Great plan with choices of vendor
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.
