I work for a division of United Technologies. 3% match on 6% contribution to 401K. Then additional cash payment based on age. The payment used to max out at 8% once you hit your fifties, now the max is 5%.

Worked for a public utility. They paid 6% of our salary into the pension fund. We paid nothing. We had 401k, but no company match. Retirement is 2% of high 3 year average at 55, + medical and dental ins for life (must sign up for medicare at 65, but they pay the supplement and drug plan).
