I've used it as an admin years ago but I wasn't the engineer that set it up and deployed it.  It did seem to allow easier delegation.  If you are ready to spend that kind of cash I'd look at some other vendors and stand them up in a lab if you can.
Some others are mentioned i this article  http://www.windowsitpro.com/print/product-review/4-ad-management-tools.aspx
If I had to choose between two I'd evaluate the Quest tool vs NetIQ.  (not saying the others are not good just don't know as much about them.
Thanks
Mike

I see.  Looks like we already paid.. I did use Hyena and Quest ARS before.  Never NetIQ.

It would be interesting to compare.

Thank you.

Also, heard about group-id tool?   What does that do?  And why would you need it besides NetIQ?
