First review round: 15.4 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Accepted.

The quality of only one of the two review reports was helpful. More importantly, it took the very long ( several months) to send back the review reports, and the reference and layout needed to be changed several times before we reached the final acceptance.
