I have myself and three employees sharing our calendars on our network.  I am on EST and they are on CST.  When I look at their calendars, any appointment scheduled as an "all day event" shows up across two days - from 1am to 1am.  This makes their calendars very difficult to read from my view.

Is their an way to work around this?

I'm viewing when logged on to exchange server (either hardwired in my office or wireless from home).  In calender view, I have my calendar and can choose any of theirs.  I like to review there calendars in "Work Week" view.

I've had the fellow who owns the company that maintains our network research this issue, and he says it is a known problem with no solution.

You can view a second time zone in Work Week view, but that's the closest you can get to solving this.  Do you know how to view a second time zone?

Yes, I have tried using two time zones.  I think the only solution to this problem would be if Microsoft structured an "all day appointment" as a generic type entry not tied to specific hours.

Many personal organization programs utilize "all day appointments" as tasks assigned to be completed on a certain day.  When you share calendars across time zones, and individuals have up to 5 tasks showing (now over two days), it can be messy!

I understand.  Given that Microsoft itself spans quite a few time zones you'd think they'd have handled this better.  Perhaps they have in 2007.

I've given up on using Calendars on our Exchange Server.  It does not fit with the way we work.  Too bad we operate accross time zones . . .

I understand.  If you feel that some of the comments were useful, even though the issue wasn't resolved, then you can close the question by selecting one or more of them as answers.  Otherwise, you can post a request in the support area asking an administrator to close the question and refund your points.
