Great wellness benefits - some that even interns could use
Free drinks (pop/soda, juice, you name it)
Pretty good cafeteria food
View outside (the mountains) were beautiful
Lots of outdoorsy things to do
Nice gym with rock climbing wall

ConsNo free meals (minus beverages)
Location in Utah may not be for everyone
