Are hydraulic brakes meant to be spongy after bleeding?

Heya all.

So I've had my brake pads replaced AND my brakes bled yesterday. I own Avid Elixir 3 brakes.

The brakes feel spongy and don't full lock the wheels when pressed all the way.
The shop that bled them says this is normal after bleeding and it should rectify itself after a few weeks.

Is this legit advise or is it as dodgy as it sounds? I'm just worried is all :(
