My company works on IIS, and we have 7 devs. Your potential setup may work, 
but here's what we do:

- 200+ production servers
- 2 staging servers
-1 qa server

- Each dev does dev work on their local machine. They have a git repo set 
up based on the development branch, which lives on QA. Each dev has a local 
website set up on IIS, so that we can run the complete site locally (we use 
central databases, so we don't have to have all data on each machine; just 
the codebase.)

- When a feature or bug is done being developed, we commit locally, then 
pull origin develop and cherry-pick the commit into develop. That then gets 
pushed, so it's actually on the QA server. It through testing, and when it 
passes, we do the same process to get the code into the staging branch. We 
use an Atlassian product called Bamboo to do the actual deployment to our 
production servers.
