Microsoft Visual Studio Review
It is flexible enough to let me use Git as well as its own version control mechanism. It would be nice if its extensions and updates could self-correct.


What is our primary use case?

Creating web sites and APIs using Angular, jQuery, MVC, and Web API. Desktop and server side assets are primarily in C#, however I use it to edit older ASPX pages for web apps written in VB.NET.

How has it helped my organization?

It is an excellent IDE, but the corporate features are what set it apart. We use TFS for our scrums, which links our tasks to actual code changes.

What is most valuable?

Personally, in my job as a developer, the version control system has been very helpful. It is also flexible enough to let me use Git as well as its own version control mechanism.

What needs improvement?

It would be nice if Visual Studio's extensions and updates could self-correct, if they are not working or disabled, and also inform the user. Lately, for example, NuGet Package Manager has failed gracefully, but it did not say why. 

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
