time change when connected to work cisco vpn?

I am having a problem with the time changing on my laptop. It is slow about 3 minutes. I have reset the time multiple times in the past few days but it always returns to be about 3 minutes slow.
This morning I did not connect to the VPN and the time did not change. Within an hour after connecting to the VPN, the time slowed by 3 minutes. I assume my time is syncing from somewhere on the network when I connect to the VPN.
Any suggestions?

Yes, it is most likely synching with a domain controller or time server on the network you are connecting to.  They have to be in synch for authentication and other things to function correctly.

ok, how can I resolve this?
Use the same time server on your laptop that the VPN/network uses.

Is this a machine given to you by your company? If so then it most likely has a GPO applied by their domain admins that syncs with their NTP server, without admin control you can't override that configuration.
