    401k is good at IBM. They will match 100% of up to 6% of your salary in your 401k after one year of service. They also have "money-smart coaches" (free personal financial advisors) to help you make personal finance decisions.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Austin, Texas

    decent 401K match, but you only get it if you are employed at end of the calendar year. HSA option is pretty good. One would think for being so large the rates would be lower.
