My previous company was like this :25 devs, a single repo for all projectd, 2 branch per project (dev, prod). I was technical director and I saw difficulties rising in every project : lot of difference between the 2 branches (abandonned project, not compl ted refactoring), merge without conflict impossible (2 days needed for every big release)... The switch to git was very positive : you can create a lot of branch from master in just a few seconds so every new dev / refactoring is based on the last version of the production source code (master). There is many concept to learn with git but it's worth it.
