I am quite happy with my company - employees are required to contribute 4% and the employer puts in 8%! Vesting is stepped: you take 50% of their money if you leave after 3 years, 75% after 4, and 100% after 5 years. Guess who's not going anywhere for at least 53 more months? :)

I also once worked for a non-profit who, unbelievably, put up 5% off the top and then matched my voluntary contribution up to 3%, so I got 11% by contributing just 3%. Immediate vesting, too. That was a great plan, but no matter what the percentages, on the salaries they paid it pretty much equaled zero!
