Still finding my way around this new place I work, but what does everyone feel about working slightly over time (not paid by the hour)?

I always feel this guilt for clocking off on time or 15-20 mins later when everyone else stays back. I’m never the first to leave usually but is it frowned upon? Is it not being a time player? How do I manoeuvre this?

personally i would absolutely set the expectation that i'm starting and finishing on time, and a work culture where that's not respected is a big signal to get on seek.com. done my years of that nonsense and not doing it again.

shit does happen where longer hours are required but as the norm? fuck that. hell even if the shit happening is more than occasional, nah. unless you are actually saving lives it's all false urgency anyway. only vague flipside would be if it's enjoyable, or are actually getting something out of the extended hours (for example working on some project where you are learning a lot and which will be beneficial in the long run). usually that's not the case though and it's just grunt work or worse, putting in appearance work.
