401k match question - what are the benefits for your firm? For Accenture we get 100% match up to 6% (total of 12%) after we are employed for at least 2 years. Just wondering how it’s like in other consulting firms.

Just started a new job and after doing some research found out they do not offer a Roth 401k. My choices are limited to a traditional 401k or After-Tax Contributions.
