I would go with who has more funds to choose from, and who has index funds that look good. But I would also go to morningstar.com and check out the ratings on some of the funds from each family. We have my DH's 401k at Fidelity, and recently rolled over my old 401ks into a Fidelity IRA. We've been very happy with all the fund choices we have.

As far as allocation goes, you could do something like this:

5-15% bond funds (and maybe an REIT fund)
10-20% international stock funds
65-85% domestic stock funds (such as index funds)

Within your domestic stock funds, you could go with 50% large cap, 25% mid cap, and 25% small cap. That's similar to how we have done our portfolio. Good luck!
