In brief: Powerful hormone
Side effects from steroids are mostly related to the duration of treatment although the amount is also important.
30mg a day is a good amount. With long term use you'd be likely to see thin bones, thin skin, fragile blood vessels (easy bruising), weight gain, increased risk for diabetes mellitus, heart attack and stroke.
