    It's the standard 401k offering and they contribute after 2 years.

    Only negative, you must wait 2 years before employer starts contributing

    You may get 403b, about 5% of your salary, and may add more when you work more years in the company.

    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.
