    The best! 3 tiers of retirement - one you contribute to, one they contribute to regardless of your contribution, and a pension plan. This may be different for different employee groups but I imagine everyone who works full-time at Kaiser is rewarded handsomely.

    The retirement plan is unsecured. Additionally, it's not a retirement plan, but a variable annuity, that the company buys from MetLife, which has no death benefit, or cost of living allowance. Lastly, since the company is buying it for you, they get the tax benefit, and you don't. It's the cheapest, bottom of the barrel variable annuity, and you don't get a choice in the matter. You would actually be better off to buy your own annuity, when you first start out, and not count on this one. Not recommended.

    Best thing is both pretax and taxable (Roth) options are offered and you can choose your mix percentage. On the downside the plan is managed by Vanguard (very good) but with relatively limited investment options (very common).

    Great if you can stay the course. Match after 2 years and pension buy in after 5.
