That would depend on your environment.  To be honest, I have to manage very little on a day-to-day basis, vCenter sends me alerts.

spend much more time managing the guest operating systems.

But if I was to list common tasks:

VM Migrations and load balancing (we currently just have standard edition)
New VMs
Check logs and performance stats.

But as I said, it could be days or weeks before I have to go into vCenter
