Just to reiterate what has already been said, it depends on what you're doing. If it's web development or shell scripting, I can promise you that you'll have a much better experience in VS Code. If it's making a Windows app then maybe not, especially if you need a resource editor. But, even for console apps VS Code does just fine as long as you don't mind having to set up debugging, etc. yourself.

It sounds like cost is the primary concern here. If so, and as Sander and Griff had mentioned, you can use the community edition of VS for a small team. If it's a larger team the cost is $1k, which isn't that much for a company with larger teams if you think about it.

Really though, for web development... VS Code is better anyway.

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
