Yes, especially if your employer matches your contribution. You would be leaving free money on the table by not taking advantage. Consider your tax advisor when determining your contribution method. Roth is typically the best option for younger investors while pre-tax often is the way to go for folks approaching retirement (typically your income tax rate is lower in retirement).
