Employer-Sponsored Retirement Plans are broken into two Groups:

Defined Benefit Plan

This plan provides you with a fixed monthly rate. Defined benefit plans are usually associated with pensions. Monthly amounts vary based on factors like years of employment and salary.

Defined Contribution Plan

This plan involves you contributing a percentage of your earnings (your employer matching that percentage) and placing it into an account. From there, the money will build interest based on investments that the money it is utilized for. Defined Contribution Plans are typically associated with 401Ks. Unlike defined benefit plans, there is no fixed rate as it can increase and decrease.
