Exchange 2013 mailbox migrations reporting wrong time / timezone

Out of nowhere my Exchange 2013 environment has changed something which is now causing migration batches to report in a different timezone.  By that I mean if I start a batch it will record that it started 4 hours from now  (I'm in Eastern timezone).  Further if I do a get-migrationbatch | fl *, every property related to a date/time all show the same as their UTC counterparts.  See example below.

It's as if Exchange is configured to report everything in UTC/GMT time but the local servers all report the correct time in the Eastern timezone.  My dev exchange environment does not do this.  Any idea what could cause this and how to change it back?
