It's a universal solution. I like that I can easily find software developers for it. I can easily find staff on Microsoft forums. Also, we have other components that are running on top of Visual Studio. I like that it is open to other platforms. Finally, there are many many resources for Microsoft Visual Studio and I can easily find support. There is a large knowledge base for it as well.

We use TFS for our scrums, which links our tasks to actual code changes.
It is also flexible enough to let me use Git as well as its own version control mechanism.

It is definitely sophisticated and provides many out-of-the-box features. Going community has boosted all that.
Most valuable features include code navigation by symbols and document auto formatting.

Microsoft Visual Studio Cons

I would like to see support for rapid application development. For example, if I am developing a new project, I am repeating many similar steps again and again and again. But the platform could do this easily, instead of me. It would save me time. This is something I would like to have in Microsoft Visual Studio, to have it take over repetitive tasks from me.

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.

Since it is a heavy product, it is somewhat slow in building and executing the code in a localhost environment and it consumes a lot of resources.
