When they work, IDE's are very convenient, if you know how to use them. I've had to use VS occasionally for work, and I sort of know my way around it. Enough to write, compile, and run a program with multiple files.
But when I first had to use it, I had no idea where to start, and it was not very intuitive. Granted, it was a version from 2012 or something, but the newer version that I use is pretty similar. I'm guessing if I used it often enough, I'd get pretty used to it, but I'd still have to contend with bugs and updates (which, being Windows, I'm guessing would be like typical Windows updates).
