I rememer once looking into this option but the manual says:

Managers. Managers have full capabilities to manipulate the
grid engine system.
Operators. Operators can perform many of the same commands as managers,
except that operators cannot add, delete, or modify queues.

Well, that is WAY too much. I do trust them but it's so easy to make
an honest mistake I do not want to mop up after....

Anyway if you ever considered any granularity in priviledges,
groups would be a natural way to go. For example "a group operator
- has full power over group jobs...."

Just a suggestion....
