Other shows sometimes haven't fared very well in this area. NBC slashed the budgets on Heroes to the bone, which resulted in the writers/producers having to cut major sequences and alter plots. The season one finale had most of the planned effects sequences cut, which severely impacted the episode. I'd hate to see SHIELD get short shrift like that.
I wouldn't worry too much. Heroes was a pretty deeply experimental show, while SHIELD is a spinoff of a mega hit movie. I'm pretty sure its going to get a solid budget.
