Pros: I think that this IDE is great because it has a good autocomplete engine, since it will make things easier for you, its interface is very elective and easy to use, it has excellent options and it is ideal for the JAVA and ANDROID program.

Cons: It is available in two versions, one free and one premium, the free version lacks many features to support other types of language other than JAVA, I think the free version should be a bit more complete.

Overall: JAVA development faster and easier thanks to its autocomplete and also has good tools for this programming language.

Pros: IntelliJ is really intelligent. It supports Java and Python very well and it looks good doing it. Settings are arranged logically and cohesively (unlike Eclipse) and within a matter of few days, one will learn how to get around the IDE.
Feature list is also pretty extensive. Built in FTP uploads of artifacts, column mode selection, multiple cursors for hyper edits and a pretty decent built in Git client. What's awesome is that it also includes Android Studio!
The plugin ecosystem is also rich. There are plugins for almost everything. For e.g., there is a multi runner plugin that runs multiple build configurations at the click of a button. Scala plugin is pretty good!

Cons: - This can be a memory hog sometimes
- A little buggy sometimes as well. For example, in version 12, I found out the hard way that the IDE was not passing in the maven surefire and failsafe properties to Junit. Spent a bit of time trying to understand why the tests were failing even though everything was in the right place
Another example was in v11. The IDE deleted my codebase! There is still a thread running on this topic on their forums and apparently, the problem still exists (though I have never experienced it in the newer versions)
- Sold on a subscription which is not that great. However, since this is the software I use to make money, I guess it's ok. Nevertheless, I feel the subscription is on the expensive side.

Overall: The best IDE in my opinion to develop Java, Python, Scala and Android applications

Pros: All of functionalities that it has, it helps a lot when you're coding it creates a methods for you and give to you hints and tips for code, so if you're beginner developer it will help you a lot.
You can import projects from git hub, do commits, pull, push all functions from git directly in the IntelliJ
The structure of the project is so organized and easy to find anything

Cons: I'm student and I applied for student license, but the commercial price is really high and it difficult the use for some companies like startups.

Pros: the IntelliJ autocomplete is smarter. It even autocompletes the name of the variable that we are declaring, offering suggestions. For example, if I have a class MyClass and after putting the type MyClass I tell IntelliJ to tell me the possible variable name, it gives me myClass.

Cons: High resource consumption both at the memory and process level when making a bild. Taking into account that your minimum requirements are 1 Gb of RAM.

Pros: For java development, it is the best IDE I have ever used. It has some really cool feature like Gradle build system, Maven project management. One of the feature that I really is the code generation.
Other feature like importing the eclipse project is something really good.

Cons: I don't see any cons of this IDE but if you are new to java you shouldn't be using this. As this IDE does, lot of work by itself that you will fail to learn the basic of the language.

Overall: It helps me working faster. Since I have start using this IDE I don't have to look into small things as those all are done by IDE itself.

Pros: - Very powerful.
- Lots of features.
- It has some unique and amazing refactoring tools, not found in most other IDEs.
- Supportive community and support.

Cons: - Paid (when there are many nice alternatives.)
- If you already use another IDE, adopting it can be quite hard. You will spend a lot of time unlearning things and learning other ones.
- Large memory footprint.

Overall: IntelliJ IDEA is a great IDE and can indeed bring a lot of productivity. Most users love it deeply. Personally, I have another preference, but it is not due to shortcomings on IDEA, rather than for habit and little differences. Yet, I recommend everyone to at least try it, as I did.

Pros: I've used IntelliJ IDEA for years, with a variety of languages and frameworks - Java, Grails, Struts, Spring, Groovy, Scala, Gradle, Maven, Ivy, Git, SVN. It is hands down the best Java IDE on the market today. Eclipse and NetBeans are not even close.

IntelliJ's code completion, code inspection, refactoring support and plugin ecosystem are ridiculously good. The performance is top notch, if you're used to Eclipse you're never going to look back. The VCS integration is amazing.

You're leaving money on the table if you haven't bought this for every Java developer in your organization. It's worth it's weight in gold for developer productivity.

Cons: Scala support is lacking, so that was disappointing. It can be a memory hog (1-2GB), though this isn't usually a problem with developer machines.

Pros: I love the autocomplete it has. When developing my code, it shows the tools I need most, as if I knew what I wanted to do.

Cons: I think your installer is very heavy, compared to another weigh three times more, the user interface is not as simple and direct as it should be. and being a commercial product, the community is much smaller

Overall: The speed of development and the ease of coding are incomparable. In addition to the few drawbacks I mentioned, the other IDEs have no chance against this.

Pros: it have many features like plugins for maven, jenkins, databases and lot more. It is the best with community version free for 1 year.

Cons: No much cons just that the 1 year version can be extended for lifetime and made opensource, which will make development more fun.

I have been using IntelliJ as my main Java IDE for the past 2 years for a variety of projects.

Pros: The first thing you see when loading into IntelliJ you notice it is very visually appealing, I personally use the default dark theme with a few minor tweaks. It incorporates a window based system that allows you to have multiple files open as well as a multitude of tools included in the Ultimate Edition. When creating a project you are able to choose from a list of templates including all of the Spring Frameworks and many other enterprise frameworks. Within these template options, you can further customize which packages to include. Once you have started coding for a while you will notice the smart completion will become more and more attuned to the packages you often use. This has been most useful for me when I used the built-in documentation tool to add the package documents into the smart completion and can, therefore, use it to not only help code but also learn about how the functions work. While my projects don't usually reach the level of needing a lot of debugging the debugger is quite intuitive and it's easy to set breakpoints and check the value of a variable. One of the more unique benefits is its native inclusion of Kotlin which allows you to use both languages in the same project or even the same file and still have world-class completion and debugging.

Cons: My main gripe with IntelliJ is its ease of use. Its many features create a steep learning curve to be able to fully utilize its enterprise-targeted tools. Documentation exists for it but it is often as obscure as the feature its self. But once you are able to get a grasp you will find the tools are all well built and include the necessary customization which you dreaded at first but have come to love.

Overall: The ability to explore enterprise-grade software and develop marketable skills.

Pros: I like so much the colors interface, its similar the text editor SublimeText.
The menu it's organized, and it's easy identified in a simple view all functions.
It's important for me stand out the refactor function, because it's possible refactor my code in a number of ways and will successfully compile statically, also the IDE adds explicit type to fields when they from field initializers and make the IDE very practice.

Cons: The free version it's very very limited in the functions and the lenguage plugins availables.
Sometimes present errors with server conection.

Overall: IntelliJ is great in the refactorings it provides and have a good plugin stability.

Good first impression, easily understandable interface , very fast program.

Very important work for this software supports multiple projects from different programming languages. IntelliJ IDEA for me it meets all the necessary things for programming.

Pros: IDEA works out of the box and their support of educational and opensource projects is truly remarkable. IDEA also has a wide range of plugins that will increase your productivity - both made by them and by the community. Their support for users of other IDEs and editors is also a nice feature to have.

Cons: IDEA sometimes gives you false positives erros in languages like Scala, which might be problematic for new users, as they might stop trusting the IDE error messages.

Pros: IntelliJ will help with your coding as soon as you begin writing it. A pull down menu will appear with suggestions of what you are trying to type in, making it quicker to write your program. It also make suggestions on how to fix any errors that it detects. What's best is that it's all open source.

Cons: Some of the default keyboard layouts does not work well. This may all be user error but I have to change the copy and paste to how it normally should work instead of having to write click the spot I want to copy or paste and then be able to do the ctrl+c or ctrl+v.

Pros: I have been using IDEA in different flavors: phpStorm, Android Studio, Goland... And impression is always good. Once you learn a few shortcuts, you can move around the code as if you were dancing. It lets you move as you think: where is this defined? Jump to definition. Which options do I have here? Autocomplete! Which was the 3rd parameter? Hints. And it has a lot of tools integrated, from VCS (git) to terminal, so if you are fluent with it you will need almost no other tool.

Cons: It is a big application, it has to do a lot of work every time you open a project, so it is not a good option for the occasional file editing (as a preview program, or to change a comma in an isolated file)

Pros: IntelliJ is, in my opinion, the best IDE available for Java and Scala development.
I was particularly pleased with the refactoring and code analysis features, which truly differentiates it from a simple text editor.
It compares very favorably to Eclipse, in particular from the UX perspective.

JetBrains offers a great Education offer, where any student enrolled in a listed university can use their software for free. This allowed me to get familiar with their Pro platform, even on a small budget.

The many platform plugins supported by IntelliJ makes it the tool of choice for a wide range of languages, including Scala.

Finally, several language-specific editors offered by JetBrains (such as CLion) are built upon the same platform. It makes it very easy to go from one to the other, and continue working in a familiar environment. It is even possible to port some of the preferences, keyboard bindings, etc.

Cons: As a full-fledged IDE, IntelliJ is much slower than a simpler editor such as Sublime Text. CPU usage and battery impact make it a poor choice when working on the go.
(This isn't be a problem on a Desktop computer).

Pros: It used it as professional alternative to the mighty Eclipse IDE since 2008 and couldn't be happier as java EE and JavaScript developer. Every detail is polished and just works.
The inspector literally educates novice developer and prevents errors. The structure to navigate through the code e.g cascaded maven multi module projects works like a charm. I don't know any better java IDE on the market.

Cons: - The lack of innovative plugins as available in tools like visual code.
- The licrense server process to fetch a license ticket for 8 hours or so is cumbersome. Makes it hard to work at the clients place because you might not be able to renew the license through their network.

Pros: I've used IDEA mainly in the form of Android Studio. Coming from Eclipse, I've found many small things that I missed there, like the shortcut to create class members and assign them for the constructor arguments, which you need to do one by one in Eclipse.

The refactoring tools and the way they let you preview the changes are great, and in many cases much more intelligent than in Eclipse.

Cons: At times, you find disappointing things, like the fact that there's no continuous build and you won't get compiler errors in preview.

A bit disappointed by the integration with git (trying to abstract away too much of its harshness).

I'm not sure I'd buy a license to replace Eclipse, although maybe I should try IDEA for a longer time and more intensely.

Pros: Like every JetBrain product open Source projet get a free licences!
Code coverage builtin the tool. Flexible support for Java and Groovy.
Testing code has never been easier

Cons: The price for a paying licence is way too much.
It is pretty much the cons associated to this software.

Pros: Very clever. Understands what you need and allows you to do it with ease.
Very customizable.
The refactoring tool is the best there is.
I'm working with Kotlin now, and it's a match made in heaven.

Cons: The price - subscription model is not the way to go, and it's a little expensive.
Although there is a free community edition.

Pros: It is, hands down, the most sophisticated IDE for Java development, packed with incredible features which aid refactoring. A very elegant feature I discovered recently is the structural search, which allows you to parameterize searches. Indexing a large project was always troublesome in other IDE's such as Eclipse, causing it to crash regularly, but I never ran into trouble with IntelliJ.

Pros: I've used Intelij for years now after switching from Eclipse. I do java/Groovy development for a living, and this tool makes it a joy. AutoComplete, find, refactor, debugging...its all there. The GIT integration is a life saver. Code formatting, syntax hilighting...it has every feature and more.

Cons: I switched from Eclipse and kept the eclipse keystrokes. That was tough for me to convert to the intellij keystrokes. For example, the default keystrokes for formatting a code section is different than on eclipse. The default key shortcuts just didn't make sense to me.

Overall: It is so powerful, fast, easy. EVEN the free version of the software has so many features. The git integration, and CRASH FREE software is just a joy to use. I loved eclipse, but Intelij has so many features that are invented by developers for developers...

Pros: loads of plugins and integrations like Git etc also has platform specific like Spring and also with popular buildtools like Maven and ANT. Also love the auto refactor which makes required changes on the whole codebase on changing class or functionName.

Cons: its a bit heavy weight application with so many plugins installed sometimes the boot up gets really slow. Just the initail wait iguess is worth the other time it saves later.

Pros: This tool improves the programming efficiency. Suggestions are very smart, it saves a lot of time letting you provide a better code.

Cons: Computer requirements are high. It's an impossible task to run it on an old computer, Jetbrain's UIs aren't the best

Pros: I can only speak for using it for python and web, but is a good fully featured ide. Debugger is excellent (can attach to web sessions in chrome). Provides project templates for common frameworks (django, flask etc.) that greatly improves setup time. Integrates with environment management tools such as pip and anaconda.

Cons: Not a great deal. Coming from a .NET background am more familiar with the tooling in Visual Studio, so can find navigating a bit clunky.

Overall: Fully functional Python and Web (typescript, javascript) development environment.

Pros: It makes working with Java and other JVM languages super simple. Lots of plugins and customization to make development easier and faster. Great support for the Kotlin language (which is also developed by JetBrains). Ultimate edition has great integration with Spring and other popular frameworks. Git (and other VCS) integration is nice. Solid integration with the major build tools: Ant, Maven, Gradle, sbt. Nice database integration.

Cons: Can be a little heavy weight, but that's the trade-off for all of the features. Upgrade process is a little disjointed.

Lots of features, customization and easy to code.

Pros: The shortcuts for various features, the different plugins and customization for almost everything. Has support for a lot of plugins and languages. The code formatting is easier to use as well. I also have used remote debugging. Features are quite intuitive to find.

Cons: Takes up a lot of memory and cpu usage. Have to forcefully shut it down few times if doing something heavy.

Pros: There is so much to like about this software, it's hard to know where to start. With the right configuration options, this IDE will ensure that the code you write is clean and correct!

LOVE the code hints. Especially when writing functions that can be simplified, IntelliJ gives hints and code examples that improve the quality of your code - as you are writing it!

LOVE the integrations with Git, Node, Maven, and other tools used for development.

LOVE the built-in terminal that allows for CLI usage.

LOVE the refactor option - if you have a lot of . "spaghetti code" that needs cleanup, you can extract methods and variables easily. Super intuitive!

LOVE the theme integration to easily switch the look of the code.

There are many more things that I love, these are just a few!

Cons: The only con about the software are the updates, which sometimes have made things confusing. Sometimes when running large projects, you may have memory errors.

Fantastic uncomplicated way of organizing code for development purposes.

Pros: I like the arrangement and viewing windows. The shortcut keys make everything really simple to navigate. I used this for the first time two days ago and with a little direction from a coworker I have a really good handle on how to navigate and manage my connection to the software for debugging.

Cons: There were a couple steps in the setup that didn't have a simple explanation, and it took us a few minutes to find our own solution, so a little better documentation would be nice.

Overall: I'm quickly learning Java whilst learning to navigate the debugging process. It's saving the company money having shorter training time, and without having to call in a dedicated trainer or send me out to training courses.

Pros: It has all the functionalities an IDE should have. It also has short video tutorials on how to take advantage of all the functionalities.

Cons: Computers with fewer RAMS can't use it effectively as it makes use of a lot of RAM and slows down systems performance.

Overall: It helps me resolve git conflicts easily. I can rename a class, function and it automatically refactors it wherever it is being used. Whenever am working with a library, I can easily check out the code since it supports code declaration. The global search functionality also helps me search easily and i can also exclude directories while searching. I use pycharm often and it helps alot with unit test. It is just the best and it is not overrated.

Pros: I like the short cuts, speed of search, having the console in the bottom, and having jrebel fairly easily implemented. As a frontend dev JREBEL is not optional.

Cons: Every once and a while when I search and close the window I can type in the editor and I have to close and open it.

Overall: Speed of development / ease of setup.

An extremely well-made piece of software. I couldn't do my job without it.

Pros: It's the BEST IDE for any language. Introspection and tab completion is top notch. Refactoring is a breeze. Huge community! Love it!

Cons: It's written in Java.... A little bloated at times, but it makes up for it in functionality. It's not as fast as Sublime Text, but it's close.

Overall: Faster and more reliable programming.

Pros: This is the best Salesforce IDE. I have tried a lot of IDEs for Salesforce including eclipse official plugin, Sublime Text with Mavensmate. But this is better than eclipse.

Cons: A minor usability hit of using IntelliJ is that the compile file shortcut will skip your music to the next song on macOS (Cmd + Shift + F9)

Pros: One of the most fluid IDEs I have used. I am not much of a Java developer, but this was the platform that introduced me to all of Jet Brains great IDEs. This is a fully functional IDE; not just some lite kit or sample. In addition, the Community Edition is completely FREE with no strings attached. Highly recommend this for both learners and professional Java developers. Jet Brains is also very good about keeping the interface consistent between their IDEs, and so this is also a good starter product if you want to branch out your skill set like I have.

Cons: It is hard to find fault, really. Every IDE has its quirks and features, and most of the decision making comes down to preference. I started with Jet Brains and so I am inclined to use this product over, lets say a Microsoft equivalent (like Visual Studio) or another Java IDE like Eclipse.

Overall: A quick and robust tool fo all things Java. The publisher also makes several other equally great products for all development disciplines.
