Telling a recruiter you have other interviews and possible offers coming in order to make them speed up a possible/rejection? Good Idea?

Depends on where you stand in their queue of other profiles. If they see you as best it will help you but if you are at same skill level then you are risking your chances.

I told them and it worked, but I also wasn't lying.

Good idea to ask them to speed up. Recruiters typically ask about these things early on in the process and appreciate updates. The key is to frame it right. Don't frame it as an ultimatum of give me an offer in 5 days or I'm gone, but rather frame it like "I have advanced in the process elsewhere, and I'd appreciate it if there was any way I could help speed up the process. I'd love the opportunity to work for you, but a mistimed offer would be a difficult situation." This lets them know to speed up while being soft enough to not end your candidacy.

Can be a good idea but can screw you i.e. if they say “oh we can’t meet that timeline. Sorry”. You can’t be like - oh jk I’m still good to go

It doesn’t really help them speed things up unless you are top of the line prospect. This are huge firms that have to go through checks and reviews

Just finished a product strategy interview. It was difficult. The interviewer's countenance did not help either ... Seemed like he was confused on what to ask me towards the end.

I really want to protest the interview but I don't think it'll fly .
