Recently experienced similar question. Much depends on each employer's plan. What I believe important is to maintain tax deferral status. I actually split my 401K ; sent half to new employer and half rolled into self directed IRA - that allows for stock purchasing -FOOLish, I guess? The new employer does not allow stocks and limited to 8 mutual funds, - this is before I started foolish reading about this investment stuff. Also, most 401K loans are available as a benefit from current employers only.
