Motivation: Overall a good experience. One troublesome reviewer with an agenda could have been tamped down a little sooner by the editor (it took two revisions for me to convince him that the reviewer was incorrect). Took 10-12 days to get an editorial decision after all of the reviews were in. Nice that the interface shows you this level of detail. Unfortunate that it took that long.

Rejected 2017
Motivation: Judging from the editorial manager system, it already took a month until the manuscript was sent out to reviewers. Eventually, only one of two submitted a review, the gist of which was that the manuscript is not suited for the journal. Overall I think the whole process took way too long. The editor should have been able to either make a decision about the suitability of the manuscript before sending it out to reviewers, or be more strict about review deadlines. Waiting almost four months for a response just cost us a lot of time that we could have used more efficiently by submitting to another journal.
