Pros: TFS , is a Tool that have maintained the whole code very easily with all the track list means we can even track single line of code who has written it and modified later. Best Thing is that its properly integrated with Visual studio. As for the integration Enginner , it make easier to maintain the code version and merge with the latest branch to deploy the latest changes. with the help of TFS we can deploy the changes as per our need means upto which code cutoff we need to apply changes where Sprint package are used.

Cons: In case we need make changes to source code , we need to create a separate work space , check out code and makes required changes and then again check in which is a quiet a long process to make changes and time consuming
The user role permission is not properly maintained in TFS .
It does not validate whether folder that is present/deleted while while creating a new build

Pros: i have been working in product based company and we are using TFS from last 2-3 years . we are accessing TFS from the Visual studio. TFS helps to manage all the source code under one Shed and everyone can have access to the code based on Permission. Multiple user can access the same code at the same time. As for integration TFS also helps to Track the each line of code by tracing out its history or by annotation It helps us to find out the latest applied change very easily within few seconds .It always Remain in sync with the latest applied changes.

Cons: TFS Comes with a lot of features but it is visible to all irrespective of the user role. As for developer and for integrator which have different role see the same functionality ,which make some confusion
It do not have Great User friedly UI , need to improve over there

Pros: It makes the source and project management features work together seamlessly as an all integrated environment. Linking stories and bugs to changesets is simple and smooth which leads to great auditing and history management. The UI is clean and organized and the project boards are very customization to support your organizations workflow

Cons: While the source management is functional and easy to use for the most part it really dropped the ball on how it handles "shelf sets" which is the closest we have been able to find to the git concept of a pull request which, if you are coming from git, you will sorely miss. Setting up approvers isn't as easy or logical as you would like. Pinning a release is also complex. Not so much a con as as note, the project management aspect is a closed ecosystem so you don't have the massive plugin library that you do in Jira.

Slightly frustrating but ultimately productive.

Pros: I really like how well TFS integrates with the Visual Studio suite of tools. It really does enable teams to work together well.

Cons: My least favorite thing about TFS has to do with workspaces. It takes very intentional and careful planning of workspaces to keep your machine from grinding to a halt whereas other source control management systems ala git/mercurial don't stress.

Overall: It makes it easier to manage my codebase with my peers.

Pros: This is the most reliable version control tool I've used, and that's exactly what you need when archiving versions of code. Many times it has been necessary to retrace steps through earlier versions of code to figure out when an issue was introduced, and it has great features to help with that type of investigation.

Cons: It can almost do TOO much. Sometimes the options to branch off code can introduce confusion if not everyone on the team understands what's going on, but maybe that's more of a personnel communication issue, rather than a problem with TFS itself!

Overall: We've been using it for more than five years for software, websites, mobile apps, and more. It has never let us down!

Pros: I've been using tfs 2015 and recently moved to 2017. It's a great tool to store all your work in one place: requirements, test cases, bugs, design documents and the actual code.

Cons: I've been using the tool for 2+ years from now and there are no any negative points for me at this point for the tool.

Pros: An easy gateway into version control that lets the user access file history, branches and a task / bug tracking system

Cons: There's a lot of better VCS out there with more features (that may be slightly more complicated to setup & use) but give the user a lot more control
