It depends. if you could max 401k, Roth IRA, and invest in a taxable account, that is the best of all worlds. Roth 401k would be even better.
I put 11% into my 401k now (age 34) and the match is only on the first 6%.
I do plan on ramping down 401k to create a taxable account closer to retirement. Always invest up to the match, though.
Light travels faster than sound. That is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak. One person's stupidity is another person's job security.
