Our expert says:
Sounds like an ill-organized and inconsiderate boss you're working for. Working late is often not about the quantity of work needing to be done, but the timing and planning of it. An efficient boss should be able to give his PA work early in the day so it can be finished in time for her to leave work at a reasonable time, and similarly with work with a potentially longer deadling - giving piles of work at the end of the day is unreasonable and unnecessary.
But try to see if this can be modified. Have a calm discussion with your boss, pointing out the severe problems caused to your personal life by the timing of your work, and asking to explore, with him, ways of managing the work that willenable you to leave at a reasonable time. Yes, maybe some work could be taken home, if dealing with an emergency, but this shouldn't be allowed to become a routine. Or they'll soon expect you to work late AND take work home. It may still be possible for you to connect to the office server from home.
Is there someone with a HR function who you could discuss this with ?
