<<I would like to know if anyone has found their company
retirement program more manageable than a standard IRA?>>

Personally I would think it better to keep in in an IRA that you yourself are directing. Investing it in the company 401k plan may limit you to a certain number of funds (as mine does) and these funds may not be amongst the best perfomers.
Additionally remember, that once transferred into your employers account, it has to remain there for as long as you are employed.
