CircleCI Pros

The ability to automate the build process in a seamless way and run workflows effortlessly. It supports parallel builds so it can scale well. Also, it covers the basics of any build and integration tool, including email notifications (especially when tests are fixed), project insights, etc.
Enables us to detect exactly which build failed and why, and to push multiple builds to our production environment at a very fast rate.
Some of the most valuable features include container-based builds, integration with Bit Bucket and being able to store artifacts.

CircleCI Cons

Integration with Microsoft Azure is one area for improvement. Azure is growing in its user base, and supports various cloud infrastructure components such as Service Fabric, App Service, etc. Some of Azure’s deployment models (like Kudu) require a steep learning curve, but if CircleCI would come up with such features (deployment to App Service) out of the box, it would be amazing.
