Does eBay offer dental insurance?

Pros

Great benefits for medical, dental and vision. I've often heard my dentist say I have the best dental insurance if that says anything. The work atmosphere is great, personable with lots of support. Often times companies say that they are family oriented and that usually means the work family. Not at Ebay. They want to help with the work life balance, and also know that life happens and are willing to work with you. They have a lot of fun events for everyone as well, most of it, you can bring your family. There are team and floor potlucks every week, so get ready to gain a few pounds!

Cons

The constant desk moving every month or other month can be frustrating.
