Photoshop CC: Drop Shadow is auto adjusting on every layer when only one layer is selected

I have noticed a bug on the Creative Cloud version of Photoshop, which I am utilizing at work. When I have a layer style on more than on layer, namely the drop shadow, and I change the settings for only one specific layer, it changes all of them. This is a definite problem. I have been using this program since 1996 when it was only version 3 and everything in between, and I assure you that this is not a simple user error.

Thank you for looking into this matter, it's quite inconvenient.

You're probably changing the light angle, and have all of the styles set to use the global light angle (which is good, since it keeps all the shadows/emboss effects consistent).
