I usually prepare a protein shake in the morning before work, and stick it in the fridge until I get a lunch break. But one Co worker told me that its not good to let the shake sit for that long since the protein and all its value breaks down. Does that have any truth to it or am I fine doing what I have been doing?

It won't break down, but it may get all foamy and yucky.

I make my shakes the night before including adding peanut butter. No issues with doing it at all.

You can perfectly keep an already blended shake, but... why not just bring the powder in the shaker and then add the water?

^^^This. No issues with keeping it in the fridge but adding the water when you are ready to drink it is much easier IMO.
