My company just made 401-K's available, but no contributions are matched, and no low-cost index styled fund choices are available, just high cost "managed" funds, many with a poor track record, and a couple that almost kept up with the market.

In this situation, is it better to skip the 401-K entirely and invest less, but in much lower cost funds, in an IRA, or to give in an put money in the expensively managed 401-K?

Thanks for your opinions...
