First review round: 23.1 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

After submission, it took about 6 weeks until the editor responded and sent the manuscript for external review. Then it took another 11 weeks until they got comments back from only one reviewer after we emailed the editor several times. This extremely slow handling of the manuscript is just irresponsible and lack of efficiency.
