Definitely use it if there's a company match, at the minimum, get the full match. Try to save at least 15% of your income if you can, after a few years, you'll have a pretty decent retirement savings built up.

Contribute to at least get the full company match. Then think about opening a Roth IRA, which has a max contribution limit of 5.5k per year assuming you are under the income threshold.
