They have to make a decision within 120 days after which time you get to get worried. You do not have much to do. You can schedule an infopass or hire an immigration lawyer.

I would hire an Immigration Attorney and have them do an info pass on your application.
You'll need to remain patient and allow CIS to complete its background checks. CIS has, by law, 120 days after an interview during which to render a decision on a case.
Kindly be advised that the answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.
Sometimes a file gets held up in the background check. Putting pressure on the service can help. Ultimately if you are way beyond the time frame for processing your recourse is to sue the USCIS.
You are not seriously beyond the processing time and I assumed you have employment authorization. You may want to retain an experienced immigration attorney with experience dealing with this specific field of immigration practice to put pressure on the USCIS or wait another 3 months before taking action.
Six months may or may not be unusual depending on the facts of your case. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review your case with you and recommend the best way to proceed.
