Does a 6 percent match generally mean that 6 pecent of your contribution is matched (big deal..well at least maybe it would offset all those FEES LOL..) or rather that you can contribute 15 percent of your salary and the company contributs 6 percent of your salary?.

Actually, a 6% match can be a "big deal." I'm retired one year now, and the company I worked for also matched the first 6% of contributions. I now have $40,000+ of company stock, which IS a big deal to me. The advantage of dividend reinvesting, compounding, and time can make up for a lot of disadvantages...IMHO.
