Not only are third party fees charged but employees should read their SPD to see if your employer charges you for their audit, their bookkeeping fees and paperwork, for taking the money out of your paycheck and other regulations etc. You should notice if you are working for an investment firm, bank etc if the 401K has their own products in the 401K and many of these many not be the best performing funds and they may also have fees making their corporation more money.
