Made a guide here how to get good faction standings to decline bad missions without being unable to continue to do missions. When I was a new player I found it very confusing so hope it helps!

This is exactly how we work with USIA, we chain missions/anomics since the faction standing loss is so minimal compared to corp/agent standing… the trick is to make sure you have high enough faction standings to not totally screw losing out on the corp/agent.
And any losses that we sustain, do not go towards the client we are grinding missions for.
