First review round: 11.6 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Motivation:
After 2.5 months of review I had to email the journal to enquire about the status after which we received an apology about the delay and a response saying the AE in-charge had been reminded. Within a few days we received the rejection with a single review. After 11 weeks. The reviewer was seeking clarification on analysis methods and was a little unconvinced by our cohort selection. I suspect the AE responsible for our M/S went to sleep on the job and in a squeeze recommended rejection on the basis of the only review he had scrounged up. Poor performance overall.
