For some people it is taking longer time than expected.

I applied for for my waiver with DOS in mid September like yours. I got my waiver from USCIS already. Within 2 months of receiving No objection statement, DOS sent the request for sponsor views. 

USCIS took 1 month for the waiver after DOS favorable recommendation.
