First review round: 19.5 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Rejected.

Even if the waiting period was average for a journal of this calibre, I would have expected after 4.5months to receive at least 2 peer reviews that could have helped me amend the paper better for the next submission. What made it worse was that despite the rejection, the feedback was generally positive and the paper could have easily been accepted with correction. Again, this made it more difficult when reworking the paper.
