    I've never come across a more generous, or even equally generous, contribution match level. The formula is a bit complicated, but the bottom line is if you're fully capturing the match (which everyone always should), the employee puts in 12% of their salary, and MITRE matches it with 10% of their salary. It's true that it used to be even better, but it's continued to do its job of keeping me from accepting offers from other prospective employers. It's kind of a diabolical scheme if you think about it: other employers are only allowed to offer you so much more than your current base pay, but that doesn't take into account the enormous differences in tax-free retirement money. Golden handcuffs. Good for MITRE!

    Retirement plans are not as good as it used to be as before, and it is declining just like other companies.

    I was happy with the retirement plan. They help you decide what plan is best for you.

    Although not a 401K, the 403 plan is very generous with levels of MITRE match.

    Best, because of the 401A matching given to certain government institutions and non profits.
