Since 12 months @ $250 = $3000 per year it sounds on the surface that there is no difference, but, the devil may be in the details.
As other have said, ideally one should try to get the maximum employer contribution possible as early in the year as possible. I think you have to work out the details to see what is the most advantagous.
If you do not contribute 5% of pay does that mean your employer does not contribute 5%?
