It totally depends on the specific site and its requirements.  For a site with a single workstation, one user account is often enough.  As things grow though, it often becomes desirable to create accounts crafted for the various roles in the facility (production guy, traffic manager, on-air announcer, engineer, etc).

Another point to bear in mind concerns sound panels.  ‘U’ panels are keyed to the particular user logged into the system.  Creating multiple user accounts thus can be a powerful way to provide each on-air person with their own customized sonic environment.
