We tried Condor a few years back and I found it a bit cumbersome. You
needed a reasonably large/repetitive problem to warrant the effort in
setting up a task. Heterogeneous nodes also made our life harder (we
couldn't just batch deploy worker applications to the nodes). A
dedicated cluster would have made it easier, but in that case I'd have
probably looked at more tightly integrated solutions.

A simpler, cooler option for a basic scheduler (that worked really well
with Windows desktops) was a home brew "at" (cron) task that ran any
batch files matching the node's assett number from a central share.

Finally, do you have anything to say on the topic of SGE vs Condor for
this sort of work?
