    401k plan matching is above the industry standard. IBM also offers free consultation for investing the 401k plan with a personalized financial adviser.

    IBM's match is pathetic at best

    They matched a decent amount, but it was given at the end of the year so if you were getting fired they would do it before the money was put in your account.

    Same as any other company

    They used to match more, but reduced the %. If you are laid off during the year, they will not match your 401k for that year. That stinks!

    Match is very good (5%), fund choices are VERY good (Fidelity; lots of choices with low ERs, for example Total Stock Market ER is 0.03%). But the match is at the end of the year.

    IBM matches up to 5 or 6 percent
