Each time I create a new user I have to go into their individual .profile and make changes to it, where is the default .profile so I can just make the change once and each new user get this change? Thanks

find / -type f -size 1234c
replace 1234 with size of your new .profile
then alter respective file and all new users will get it.
remember to set up two profiles, as users tend to change between c-shell and korn-shell worlds
