    Match 50% up to 6% of base salary

  • Sep 04, 2017

    Starting Jan. 1, 2018, 401k does not match after $18,000. Meaning, if you are doing the 50+ catch up, you tap out at $18,000. Vanguard loaded with fees that company installed.

    Company matches half up to 6% of salary, which is just fair for the industry. Pension large makes up that shortfall. Switched from Schwab to Vanguard a few years ago and returns have significantly improved.

    50% match up to 6% is a very nice set aside.

    Overall good 401k plan. You have a choice of low risk and high risk options.

    General Atomics only matches 1/2 of the girst 4%

    Good matching and coupled with the retirement plan means 10 years with the company can result in about a year's salary in savings

    401K Managed through Vanguard and company matches up to 7 percent.

    Company match and employee contribution is fine

    It's the same as the rest of the industry offers. Nothing special, the only great part is that there is retirement benefits as well in addition to 401k
