5. Principal Financial Group
Principal Financial Group
The financial management company has a mix-and-match system.

The company offers 75% matching on employee 401(k) donations, up to 8% of pay, while two defined-benefit plans scale up over an individual's career and, in some cases, top out at 14% of pay.

Together, for a retiree who has spent 25 to 30 years at the company, the plans can provide the equivalent of a full salary for life, as well as perks like health care and financial advising.
