    Good match but have to stay with company until December 15 to get the match chooses are good

    With a 6% full match, it would be as good as any I'm aware of - - but to save money, they no longer match with each paycheck/employee contribution. They only match at the end of the year and then, only if you are still employed on Dec 15. You leave on Dec 14, you don't get any match for the year.

    401k plan is available to the employee and the company provides matching funds. Best to begin investing early and as much as you can.

    Seems to be a decent plan. Match only at end of year so they can take advantage of the people they terminate without matching which seems short sighted but consistent with the companies financial first focus.
