need advice with possible ira roll overs...from ameriprise and few others

There are a few parts to this so i'll try to make it clear as possible. My wife has her retirement account with Metlife and i have mine with AXA. We have a separate roth ira with amerprise but we are leaving them totally because of all the fees they charge. i'm thinking of rolling over the amerprise IRA to vanguard which should be easy enough. What about metlife and axa? I think we chose these two because they came to our work and talked about retirement accounts. should we keep our individual accounts with them or also roll them over to vanguard? do metlife and axa have reasonable fees or are they taking more than they should? what should we do?

I'd move everything to Vanguard to both lower my expenses and simplify management.

Numbers is hard.

Tell us the fees that metlife and axa charge and we can tell you if they are reasonable. I'm suggesting this partly as an exercise for you since it sounds like you don't even know the fees they charge. What if they charge more than Ameriprise?
