I have the exact same MacBook Pro. Mine was running extremely slow. I installed an SSD hard drive and did a clean install of OS X El Capitan. It runs like a new computer now. I also upgraded my RAM from 4 GB to 8 GB. Crucial has a program that will tell you exactly what you need. But for around $175, you can have it running like new!
Part of the issue is that low priority I/O now seems to get throttled heavily (or so fs_usage tells me - if you run fs_usage and look for backupd, you can see it getting throttled). So if you have a ton of files, just the time it takes to do the i/o takes forever, even if the files are small (because it performs a bunch more i/o operations around xattrs/etc ...
I've got the same issue, and I've found what looks a solution (not wonderful but it works) format your external HDD and check that you have a real good bandwith (test your usb3) pay attention of your TM settings, here I forgot so much other partitions and disk images that I don't want to back up, it would increase bck time. launch the first backup. ...
Not managed to find any conclusive information on symptond anywhere so far. And not entirely confident in my fix, but turning off the firewall seemed to alleviate the problem for me anyway.

Since apps, which have been run once after startup, when relaunching them, they are mainly started off inactive memory/cache and therefore are faster the second time you start them. This is in line with your statement that once they are loaded, they work fine. As a ...
In general, the installer won't care about the count of CPU. Even run-time, most programs won't check on the number of CPU and instead just make threads and throw it at the kernel for execution. Software can certainly query the system on timing and Logic and other audio processing apps certainly do - but you might have made things worse if that program is ...
To fix that you will probably have to reinstall Mac OS X. To do that, hold the command key when you press the power button and when the system starts up, click the option to re install Mac OS X. Hope this helps.
I've strived to get at least 10 years of life out of all my Macs starting back in the 80's. So when I updated to OS X 10.11, El Capitan, on my late 2009 Mac Mini I felt like something was dying. Needless to say, the 2GB RAM is not sufficient but a very affordable 8GB upgrade (US$46) was well worth it. Now all my newer OS devices play nice and I'm happy to ...
