Hi Josh: Quick question: XUL or web staff client? And version?
In theory, what you see is what you should get - MARC has no idea what HTML entities are, so "&" in the editor should be displayed as "&" (properly escaped, of course) in the catalogue. If you see &amp; in the biblio.record_entry.marc, it may be the result of corrupted catalogue enrichment efforts (e.g. grabbing the summary for a book from a website via a script with a bug), and thus should just be corrected directly to "&". Unless it's a deliberately torturous book title like "Escaping <HTML> &amp; other Secure Web Practices" :) If & in the MARC shows up as just & in the 520 catalogue output, it sounds like there might be a bug for us to track down...
