In PS CC (on OSX), when I select a shape (in this case, a rectangle), PS selects all elements within a folder, therefore I cannot move 1 shape within a layer, it moves the entire contents of the folder.

One caveat is that I can use the arrow keys to move the shape, but this take a very long time to move to the correct area.

Sounds like you have auto-select for the move tool set to select the group instead of the individual layer.
You can change that in the move tool options bar.

Thanks! Not sure how that feature got changed, but I reverted and it is working properly now.
