The admin area is going to be naturally slower than the front end just because there is so much processing going on. Something of the things you can do to ensure performance increases in the backend is to disable modules you are not using. You can do this under Administration > Modules.
Keep in mind also if no actions are made in the backend the site will go cold like any other asp.net application and the first request will warm it up again but this first request can take a while as the site loads itself back up.
