    conversation natural?

    John: I have been here for 2 years and I haven't learnt a bit.
    Joseph: It's funny you shouldn't learn anything, especially in this organization which is renowned for making better professionals of employees.


    Does the above conversation sound natural?

    Is It's funny you shouldn't learn anything = It's funny you didn't learn anything?

    It makes a better professional of you.

    I think I have heard such usage before. Correct me if I am wrong.

    What was your original question? Correct? Or natural?

    By the way, you are right: for making better professionals of employees.
