Technomancers can compile a sprite with suppression. Suppression holds off any alarms for sprite force/2 combat turns. That is an eternity in hacking time, where a technomancer has at least 3 actions per turn. Now they can run an exploit and shoot for admin every time. It doesnt matter if it takes them 3 or even 4 tries. If the target system detects them, it cant do anything about it for a very long time. Now they have admin and at least a few passes to act (possibly 8 or more actions assuming ip echoes and/or high level sprites). Am I missing something? What do admin privilege's really do? Are they not as OP as they sound?

Not all that OP ..  all it does is open up certain actions that require Admin access

It doesn't have much effect, I often get angry when I encounter these situations.  :'( :'( :'(
