I don’t think 4% is anything special. Probably in the normal range.

6% full match. Takes a year to start kicking in

Yes this is correct

My last agency matched up to 6% after so many years. Current agency doesn't match at all. But maybe that's how it goes with small agencies?

I’ve worked at IPG, WPP and Publicis agencies. All have matched 4% if employee contributes 6%+.

100% match up to 4%, no vesting period required

100% match up to 4% starts immediately but not vested for 5 years..

Thanks for the response everyone. Really appreciate it! Follow up Q: should I negotiate more cash comp at an agency I want to enter, if my other offer has a 4% matching of 401 k from the start of employment?
