COMPANY THINKS STAYING BACK = WORKING HARD, EMPLOYEES MADE TO STAY BACK AFTER WORK

Recently I (M26) job hopped to a new company & industry where the pay is relatively much higher than my previous job. However 1 week in, i realise that their work culture is: staying back == work hard.

I’m the type of employee that gets things done. So when i finish work for the day, i expect i can go back on time (working hours 9-6). On top of that I come in early everyday so far. I’m the only person who comes in before 9( usually 8.30-8.45). So you would understand why i would want to go back by 6.10/6.15pm.

They’ve tried to keep it low key ( teasing how I always go back early) and I’ve heard a few chatters behind my back but i brushed it off).

The thing is, just the other day a colleague (M27) who has been in the company for close to 4 years, pulled me aside telling me “I’m not telling you what to do but when I started out, I waited for the seniors to go back before I went back”.

This really puts me off and I don’t understand the point of me staying back If i don’t have work to get done. Its entirely different if some urgent work is unfinished which I wouldn’t mind taking some time to complete.

But this is such a waste of my time as I have other better things to do.

I’m very frustrated with the situation, any tips/ input on how i should go about this would be appreciated.

Additional Info: after the senior told me his story I’ve been staying back for an additional 10 mins, but I’m still the earliest to go back so I expect the same talk/ dissatisfied colleagues to talk behind my back.
