Don't forget to check USCIS's case processing time here to get an idea.  The current processing time is 4.5 to 6.5 months:

WWell, if you look at my data, some may be faster than others but most people do get their cards produced within 4-6 months, so I think it's still pretty reliable! What is your timeline, care to share with us?

Can I still work without an EAD card?

Can't wait endlessly? The great news is - Yes some of you can! Some applicants are qualified to use their I-797 Notice of Action as their temporary work authorization proof and your employer will use that to report in the I-9 form. Your notice date has to be between December 1st, 2019 and August 20th, 2020. Read this article to see if you are qualified!
