Greetings, Jimmonroe, and welcome. You wrote:

My company also uses Fidelity for our 401k. Finally after years of prodding by the employees, they have added some non Fidelity choices. We did have some decent choices before, Contrafund, Growth Company , and others. Now they have added some Janus and Baron funds and a few others.

My point is that this came about as the result of input of the employees input. They also relaxed the loan requirements and increased the company match. So I guess it comes down the how much the company listens to and cares about keeping their employees. So its worth it to let your wants known to the higher ups.

Bravo! I've said more than once that persistence in raising the issue and the involvement of employees can work wonders in broadening the selections in a company's 401k plan. Thanks for the affirmation.
