It's definitely quite different from the CLI. I'm still dabbling, but the guys here who have been through the training and are immersed in it really like it. We're using a couple for feature-rich BNG - lots of MLPPP at high bandwidths (for broadband), heavyweight QoS, BGP to the CE, etc. It's very controllable by RADIUS - template configs that you can fill in the values for, rather than the Cisco approach of AVPs with pages of config in.
ALU have an e-learning "SR-OS introduction" course, which is going down pretty well for jump-starting our Ops people.
