How do you balance the perceived bias towards extroverts in consulting? ATK culture is shifting towards being more fun, social, informal & collaborative. What does that mean for introverts?

No one should feel out of place at ATK due to a dominant ethos. Not sure I fully understand the perceived bias against introverts point. And if there is a fse either/or choice you are highlighting. We should all respect the different ways we experience interactions, formal or informal. Please DM with more thanks.

I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?
