Does IKEA offer parental leave?

Pros

in terms of a company that actually looks after its employees IKEA is one of the best I've worked for. It pays the equivalent of the national living wage foundation which is a bit above national minimum wage, but not only this the benefits with the company are outstanding. A good pension system, solid in work benefits such as a subsidised restaurant, discount in shops and on sale items, good parental leave system, this list goes on we was even given a bonus for working over covid. Team leader and employees are some of the best people I've worked with

Cons

this isn't necessarily something others would care about but for me the nature of the company means the type of people working for it are very politically "left wing" which can be a bit unbearable at times if you're on the other side of the spectrum
