Motivation: 14 weeks after submission I sent an email to the editor inquiring on the unusual length of the review. Within one hour I received a rejection email. Who knows how long had the editor sat on our reviews, and how they made a haste decision immediately after receiving my message. This did not feel at all like a professional and thorough evaluation of the reviewers' comments, which were easily addressable. Ultimately the paper was published in a journal of higher impact and has been cited >100 times.

Motivation: The initial review time was far longer than what is reported as their average turn-around time on their website. The handling editor did, however, reach out to notify us of the prolonged wait time and made efforts to speed the remainder of the review process. The reviewers comments were helpful and seemed to be from peers who were indeed experts in the field-of-interest.

Motivation: We submitted our manuscript to Genome Research via BioRxiv and it was sent to review about a week later. We didn't get our reviewer's reports back until nearly 4 months of time had passed! The reviewers were all very pleased with the paper and only requested some additional bioinformatics analysis and clarifications. We turned around our revised paper in a few weeks and it still took them another two months to accept the paper. Really pleased with the outcome, but with the lengthy review process, I'd be reluctant to submit to Genome Research in the future.
