It appears that I have to proactively select the timezone I'm in to Google Drive so that they display correctly. Is there a way I can push this setting to all users within the organization?

You can change your timezone in the settings for Google Drive. See below screenshots.

As for changing it for all users this is not possible. Each user will have to set their timezone individually.

Thanks Wade. I know that users can do this on their own but getting over 200 or more people to do it is unreasonable. Is there a management tool that would allow an admin to do so? – PeanutsMonkey Feb 14 '13 at 23:14
@PeanutsMonkey I've never used it, but this tool seems to indicate that it can: flashpanel.com/feature/set-calendar-time-zone – Wade Feb 16 '13 at 1:15
This no longer works in the new version of Drive, can someone say what does? Haven't been able to figure that out. – tog22 Mar 20 '15 at 1:21
@PeanutsMonkey - best to unaccept this answer. – tog22 Mar 20 '15 at 1:29
@tog22: I was able to go to "Settings" => "Leave the new Drive", change the default "Time zone" and then switch back to the new Drive.. – grubers Jun 4 '15 at 20:42
