I work ft, 8 hours a day. I've been pumping 3 times a day, 8, 11 and 2. I'm considering dropping to 2 times a day. Ds will be 7 months on the 13th. I've had supply issues but thanks to domperidone things are going much better. Is this going to seriously throw off everything?
I nurse and pump for his morning and try and nurse and pump for his first feeding after work.
I need to try and drop a feeding because dh and I are going to try and start carpooling plus work is becoming increasingly demanding. Ds has also started on baby food as well.
I'll be honest and say it could. For me personally my supply dips the less times I pump. But it's a very personal thing. You can always give it a try for a week or two and go back to 3 times a day if it's not working.

I say do whatever you feel is best! I also work FT and pump, but my puming is never on a schedule, as I don't ever get a let down while pumping. Basically I pump about 2-3 hours after I last fed him, and this gets me about 1 oz. Then within ten minutes I feel a let down when I'm back at my desk, so I race back to the restroom and pump again, and this gets me 3-4 oz. After that I'll usually have another let down again before the work day is overwith, and I do the same thing. It's such a pain in the butt... but well worth it for my LO!
