Good plan offered. Close to matching
I really liked the 401k option; however, I started before I turned 18 and was not made aware that I was eligible for this benefit until two or three years after I was eligible.
I couldn't open one until 21 or 25.
ever changing 401k - no other comment
Easy to use and manage, match after 1 year
seemed to be a good plan. Company matched what you put in
I didn't really know when I was registered for the 401k packet but I liked that they took money out my paycheck and saved it.
The match could be better but not bad.
Average company match plan; plan is not good, not bad.
