Yeah, that's the current way everyone does it.
Andy Pavlo is actually working on some cool native Condor mechanisms
to support this kind of recurrent scheduling in a more reliable way
than cron[*], and as soon as they're available we plan to use use
them in the NMI B&T system to offer more robust B&T scheduling as a
built-in feature -- but for the time being, cron is it.
[*] E.g., worrying about how to express and enforce clear semantics
on exactly when to execute, how to execute on time, what happens when
you miss an execution window, what to do when subsequent executions
overlap, etc. I.e., avoiding all the age-old problems of cron, when
jobs do unexpected things. Nice stuff.
