    The matching is weak compared to other high-end employers.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Director in San Francisco, California

    Limited match provided annually based on company performance

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Match isn't great, depends on company's performance every year

    funds are matched but cannot be vested until 24 months of employment. this is better than some places in Austin who do not offer any matching, but those that do usually vest at 12 months.

    Match is OK and varies, based on company sales performance - some years it's high and some years it's low

    It was average- similar to other companies

    The matching is more than I've experienced at a company in the past 15 years. It varies on how much it pays out but for 2016 it was .40 on the dollar. Can't remember the cap on that though. I ended up with about $6K paid out this year.

    We do matching on what you put in up to a certain %

    Not a guaranteed match, only given once per year, and not immediately vested in employer matching contributions. Of the 4 companies I've worked for, this is the weakest 401k plan I've had. The match only happening once per year is poor for investment timing - research dollar cost averaging and you'll understand why many stock purchases throughout the year can be helpful for reducing risk.
